“Working with such generous donors as Baby Gourmet, we’re able to be the first line of emergency food support for families and individuals facing crisis,” said Val Lawton, Development Coordinator at Calgary Food Bank. “The Shakers donation from Baby Gourmet aligns well with our mission, which is: together, we fight hunger and its root cause, because no one should go hungry.”
“Baby Gourmet’s Heart of Baby Gourmet program is centered around our belief that every parent and child deserves access to the high quality nutritious food,” said Michael Watt, CEO of Baby Gourmet. “Our dedicated food bank partners make it possible for us to provide nourishment to Canadian families with young ones needing a little extra help, and welook forward to expanding our efforts over 2018.”
So far in 2018, Calgary Food Bank has provided Shakers beverages to over 500 school children (K-12) in over seven schools across the country.
