Grocery Foundation Toonie for Tummies Campaign Feb 9-23 2017

Toonies for Tummies, returns February 9-23, YOUR TOONIES ARE MAKING AN IMPACT IN THE LIVES OF CHILDREN IN YOUR NEIGHBOURHOODS!

Student nutrition programs can be found in all corners of the province. The good news: research shows they are having a tremendous positive impact benefitting elementary and high school students.

Among the benefits we’re seeing are improvements in academics, in behaviour and on graduation rates. Students attending these programs are also learning about nutrition which is also vital to life-long healthy eating and wellness. 

Thanks to campaign sponsors and the public who support Toonies for Tummies, The Grocery Foundation is helping feed brighter futures for many children, including in your community. With your donation of as little as a toonie in-store, or online, you are actively joining a growing community of parents, educators, companies, and advocates for student nutrition. On behalf of all of these partners and of course, on behalf of the children who reap the benefits of our support and generosity – THANK YOU!

The 2017 Toonies for Tummies (@groceryfndtn #toonies4tummies) campaign will take place February 9-23. We are most pleased to have long-time supporters including Metro, Food Basics, Longo’s and select independent retailers return to the campaign. You can find a complete list of retailers and supporting sponsoring companies online at http://www.groceryfoundation.com/

The Grocery Foundation is looking to raise $850K in Ontario and in Western Canada through participating retailers and online donations. All (100%) of all proceeds and funds collected will be allocated back into the local community where the donation is made. The Foundation invites you to track your toonie at www.tooniesfortummies.ca. You can also engage with The Foundation on twitter @groceryfndtn and on Facebook at .facebook.com/groceryfoundation.

On behalf of Halton Food for Thought, thank you in advance for your support.
