Vancouver, BC (September 21, 2017) COBS Bread has raised $166,480 through its 99 bakeries across Canada for Breakfast Club of Canada (The Club), a non-profit organization dedicated to providing funding and services for over 1,600 school breakfast programs in communities across the country.
From September 15 to September 17, 2017, COBS Bread donated $1 from the sale of each loaf to The Club, and customers were also provided with the option to make a donation during a three-week fundraising period from Aug. 31st – Sept 20th.
“As a company that is committed to our communities and providing healthy food to Canadians, our values strongly align with The Club. Our bakery owners and teams really connect with the cause,” says Aaron Gillespie, President of COBS Bread. “We feel it is our duty to work with The Club to help them achieve their mission to ensure no Canadian child starts the school day on an empty stomach.”
