Mealshare Monday at A&W – every purchase provides a meal to a youth in need
The Beyond Meat Burger is the new Mealshare Monday feature item at A&W Canada – every purchase will provide a meal to a youth in need!
Mealshare, a national social enterprise on a mission to help end youth hunger, partnered with A&W Canada in February 2021 to provide funding to Mealshare’s network of 450-plus charity partners (which includes BGC Okanagan) and Save the Children Canada.
All 1,000-plus A&W locations across Canada are participating in Mealshare with the goal of sharing 1,250,000 meals per year. A&W Canada and their guests have already shared over 400,000 meals with youth in need.
In June, A&W Canada refreshed the Mealshare Monday campaign with a new feature item – the Beyond Meat Burger. On ‘Mealshare Mondays’, customers can order a Beyond Meat Burger and one meal will be provided to a youth in need through Mealshare. Customers also have the opportunity to help fight youth hunger any day of the week through the “Make it a Mealshare” program. When customers “Make it a Mealshare,” $1 is added to their bill and then a meal is provided to a youth in need through Mealshare on their behalf. Customers can participate in-restaurant, through drive-thru, or by using the mobile app.
“We have been blown away these past months by the impact A&W has had for our program and for all the youth we support across the entire country. We are excited to see the impact the Beyond Meat Burger will have in our goal of reaching 1,250,000 meals shared this year,” says Jeremy Bryant, Co-Founder of Mealshare.
“We love that Mealshare allows A&W Canada and our guests to help make a difference in the lives of so many youth in need,” says Susan Senecal, President and CEO at A&W Canada
