Vince’s Market Collects Toonies for Tummies!

Vince’s Market is taking part in the 2019 Toonies for Tummies campaign running from February 7th to February 21st. In conjunction with The Grocery Foundation, Vince’s Market will be collecting donations as well as selling many of the sponsored products in order to help feed hungry children in our communities.

The Grocery Foundation does so much more than just feed hungry children; it also nourishes their potential and their wellbeing. The funding collected during the Toonies for Tummies campaign helps to ensure tens of thousands of school-aged children and youth have universal access to proper nutrition while at school. Not only do they have the Toonies for Tummies program, but they also achieve their goals through Foundation grants, industry donations, and fundraising events.

100% of donations made through this campaign go directly to kids and youth in the communities where the funds are collected.

If you’d like more information on what The Grocery Foundation does, please visit their website at http://www.groceryfoundation.com/index.html. Information for how you can volunteer or donate directly can be found on their site as well.
