Mealshare adds 24 Vancouver restaurant partners

Jul 7 2016, 4:28 am

Getting food to those in need just got easier for diners in Vancouver, thanks to the addition of two dozen new partner restaurants in the Mealshare program.

This expansion is the biggest in the program’s history, and it makes Vancouver the Canadian city with the most participating restaurants (60 of them!).

Mealshare essentially works on the buy one, give one model; when diners order select menu items at partner restaurants (denoted with the Mealshare logo on the menu), a meal is given to a youth in need.

In honour of the exciting expansion of Mealshare in Vancouver, chefs and restaurant owners were on hand at Queen Alexandra Elementary on July 5 to create and serve lunch to youngsters who benefit from the KidSafe program.

Mealshare has enjoyed a tremendous year, with their addition of Ottawa to their roster of cities, winning the 2016 Canadian Social Enterprise of the year award from the Small Business Achievement Awards, and raising $30,000 in their Tonight for Tomorrow dining out fundraiser. Look for much more ahead in the coming months as Mealshare continues to grow, and spread the good.
