Campbell Canada has partnered with the UN to help provide school meals to 20 million children
Toronto – A Canadian food processor is helping to nourish children around the world.
Now when consumers purchase Campbell Canada’s recently launched Nourish, a complete meal in a can, $0.25 from every can sold will go to the UN World Food Programme (WFP) to help fund school meal programs for children. The WFP provides school meals to an average of 20 million children each year in 60 countries.
Currently, each time Canadians buy a can of Nourish, the company donates one can to Food Banks Canada.
Nourish is available at participating grocery stores across Canada. It’s available in two varieties: Hearty Chicken Bean and Six Vegetable Grain for a suggested retail price of $2.49. Nourish uses unique Naked Oats from Wedge Farms Nutrition Ltd. in Manitoba.
Campbell Canada launched Nourish in February with an initial 100,000-can donation to Food Banks Canada.
