Mealshare is a fantastic way to help people in need without having to do anything extra. All you do is go to a restaurant that is a Mealshare partner and select a Mealshare item from the menu. You buy your meal and Mealshare provides one to someone in need – buy one, give one. There’s no added cost and it truly is that simple.
Meals are donated locally through PARC(The Parkdale Activity and Recreation Centre) and internationally (through Save the Children).
Mealshare launched in October but will be celebrating on May 21st by welcoming 14 more top Toronto restaurants to the program.
Derek Juno, VP of Business Development says "This launch really is our way of introducing ourselves to Toronto. We are on a mission to completely revolutionize the hospitality industry in Canada and we hope the Toronto restaurant community will play a big part to have in helping us accomplish that."
Currently, Mealshare is partnered with over 180 restaurants across seven cities.
It has been a big year for the company – In March, Mealshare’s Co-Founders Jeremy Bryant and Andrew Hall were both recognized as two of Corporate Knights’ Top 30 Under 30 young business leaders in Canada, and on April 30th they provided their 250,000th meal to someone in need.
Hawthorne, Khao San Road, Nana, and Cafe Belong started the program back in October and Mealshare items are currently available there. All other restaurants officially start the program on May 21st, with Terroni starting a bit early.
So go out for dinner or lunch or even just a donut. Choose a Mealshare item and know that while you're having a great meal, so can someone else now, thanks to you.
