Each September, there are even more smiling faces at the participating Guelph Tim Hortons locations. Guests can purchase a special smiling chocolate chip cookie for $1.00 plus taxes and all the proceeds will be donated to Food and Friends student nutrition programs.
"Tim Hortons is thrilled to help bring smiles to Food and Friends through our annual Smile Cookie fundraiser,” says Joanne Longton, Tim Hortons Restaurant Owner. "The success of the program would not be possible without the support and generosity of our guests. On behalf of all Guelph Team Members, I would like to thank all our guests for their continued support of this meaningful cause."
2012 marked the 12th year of the campaign, Guelph Tim Hortons generous guests have helped to raise over $230,000 for Food and Friends. This year’s proceeds will be directed towards our 80 student nutrition programs, helping provide healthy food to over 13,000 students.
Anita Macfarlane, Community Program Director for Food and Friends, notes "Over 13,000 students receive a healthy meal through Food and Friends. There are children in our city that are going hungry. For some children and youth, the food that Tim Hortons help us to provide in our programs is the only meal they will have all day.”Thank you Tim Hortons for your continued support!
At the 2010 Around the World Gala, Tim Hortons was recognized as a Benefactor of the Foundation for having donated over $100,000 to support the Food and Friends program.
