Mealshare Aid Society
Mealshare is a charitable social enterprise on a mission to END youth hunger by making it easy for individuals and businesses to share meals with youth in need. We partner with restaurants, placing our logo next to a few menu items. When a customer orders a 'Mealshare item' they get their meal just like normal, and we provide one meal to a youth in need! Buy one, give one – simple.
We are a home-grown Calgary concept and got off the ground with 2 restaurant partners in 2013. Since then, we’ve grown to more than 100 restaurant partners in Calgary alone – and 450 in total across Canada and into the United States. We’ve already provided over 2,700,000 meals to youth in need – and that’s just the beginning of our story! We’re excited and committed to enabling and inspiring millions of people to join us in the fight to END youth hunger.
