Grocery Foundation Annual #Toonies4Tummies supports local Student Nutrition Programs during February

2019 is gearing up to be an exciting year for the Grocery Foundation’s Toonies for Tummies, centred on the #ToonieChallenge.

Canadians are known around the world for jumping in and helping others, causes and challenges. Feeding hungry children and shoppers’ support of Toonies for Tummies over the years is further evidence of that giving spirit.

This year, the Grocery Foundation’s goal is to raise $1.2M. They are confident with the support of retailers, sponsor brands and the kindness of shoppers at the till that they will once again reach their goal and help provide nutritious meals to students across Western Canada and Ontario… including right here in Halton!

Throughout this year’s campaign you will see reference to #ToonieChallenge. It’s simple, donate at a participating retailer during their Toonies for Tummies campaign window. You may also wish to make your donation during a Match Funds day when retailers will be matching donations made by shoppers.

February 1st through 21st donate at participating Longo’s locations.  Longo’s Match Days = Feb 2nd and 3rd, 2019

February 7th through 21st donate at participating Food Basics and Metro locations.  Food Basics and Metro Match Days = 9th and 16th, 2019

Halton Food for Thought, in partnership with the community feeds students healthy food so they can succeed!.
