Montana’s is partnering with Food Banks Canada to help battle food insecurity in Canada.
As part of the initiative, the company will donate the equivalent of two meals for every dine-in visit or takeout order made in the week leading up to Thanksgiving (October 4 to October 10) in hopes of donating more than 100,000 meals this week.
“Montana’s is excited to expand our partnership with Food Banks Canada to donate a minimum of 100,000 meals to people in need across the country,” said Adrianne Largo, director, marketing of Montana’s. “It’s been a hard couple of years for everyone, and we’re happy to do our part to give back. Corporate social responsibility is a key tenet of Montana’s values and we will continue to actively support our local communities.”
“We are so grateful for the support of Canadians, and for partners like Montana’s who care about their neighbours experiencing food insecurity. We all have a role to play in solving hunger,” said David Armour, CEO, Food Banks Canada.
According to HungerCount, in 2019, 5.57 million meals and snacks were provided by Food Banks Canada, representing nearly 1.1 million visits to local food banks across Canada in one month alone.
