Nationally, Tim Hortons restaurant owners support over 600 local charities and community groups through the Smile Cookie campaign. On top of that, local Tim Horton restaurant owners provide in-kind donations of food and gift cards for several events organized by the Children’s Foundation.
“We all know that inflation continues to affect food costs, and families who are already struggling to provide continue to feel the pressure every day. Our Food & Friends Program provides these families with relief, knowing their kids will have access to a healthy meal when they arrive at school.” said Food & Friends Program Director Anita Macfarlane
"We're so proud and humbled that Tims’ guests have once again shown incredible support for our Smile Cookie campaign and important charities and community groups where they live." says Axel Schwan, President of Tim Hortons. "To achieve such an amazing result means baking and hand-decorating millions upon millions of Smile Cookies over the course of just a week. My heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone who made this happen, including all of our passionate restaurant owners, team members and volunteers who helped us dot eyes and create smiles.”
