Goodfood Market announced a lifetime donation of one million meals to long-term partner Breakfast Club of Canada, marking the Canadian brand’s ten-year anniversary.
In celebration of this milestone, Nick Suzuki, captain of the Montreal Canadiens, joined Goodfood to serve breakfast at Maple Grove Elementary School in Lachine, announcing his own financial contribution of $10,000.
Recently, Goodfood launched its ‘Meal for a Meal’ initiative with the Montreal Canadiens captain, donating one meal to the Club for every Nick’s Picks meal kit purchased, ultimately contributing to the brand's goal of one million meals donated.
“As a professional athlete, Nick Suzuki understands the role that breakfast plays to fuel an active lifestyle,” says Jonathan Ferrari, co-founder and chief executive officer, Goodfood, "We’re excited that Nick has joined our mission to provide more children with nutritious meals through Breakfast Club of Canada and help them reach their full potential."
“Every child should have access to a nutritious meal so they can start their day strong, which is why I’m extremely proud to have partnered with Goodfood to help them achieve their goal of donating one million meals to the Club,” adds Nick Suzuki.
“With one-in-four children across Canada experiencing food insecurity, support from valued partners like Goodfood has never been more important for the Club,” says Paul Lethbridge, director, corporate and community giving at Breakfast Club of Canada. “Our goal is to provide consistent support to breakfast programs across the country, and Goodfood’s ongoing commitment to our cause helps make this possible.”
