Virginia Woolfe said it best- “one cannot eat well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” There is power in food. Some of the best memories we have involve breaking bread with family and friends. But think about how many people go hungry each and every day? Enter Mealshare.
Mealshare provides an easy way to give to those in need, while keeping your own hunger pains at bay. How? The organization has partnered with different restaurants throughout the city on a Mealshare item, marked on the menu with an icon. Enjoy your delicious food as normal, and feel good knowing a meal will be given on your behalf, to a person in need. The meal will be donated to your community’s local charity partner, such as the Calgary Drop In & Rehab Centre, or internationally through Save the Children.
In addition, Mealshare works to provide shelter, education and opportunity to those in need. So, next time you’re deciding where to dine, why not make it a Mealshare date? Anju, Market, Una Pizza+Wine, River Café and several other local hot spots are Mealshare partners. Need dessert? Fiasco Gelato is in on the fun. We call that having your gelato and eating it too. Check out the Mealshare website for addition info. Full belly, and a full heart- we like the sounds of that.
