Vince’s Market hosts annual BBQ to raise money for Toonies for Tummies

Vince’s Market recently hosted a fundraising BBQ for Toonies for Tummies on June 15. Since the beginning of the year, Vince’s has raised $21,482 for Toonies for Tummies through the grocery’s community product initiative, with an additional $768 coming from the June 15 barbecue.

“Communities, such as Sharon, are like many across the country that see tremendous benefits in providing a healthy meal to the more than 1 in 3 at risk of starting the day on an empty stomach,” says Shaun McKenna, executive director of The Grocery Foundation. 

“While summer and the end of the school year is upon us, the importance of the local breakfast program to the community was made very clear by East Gwillimbury Councillor Susan Lahey and Mayor Virginia Hackson to members of our Grocery Foundation  team who had the good fortune to join in on the third annual BBQ,” he added. “We know the dollars raised are going to tremendously benefit the community and we are  grateful to Vince’s for being so engaged in their local communities and, with our mission, to nourish young bodies and minds so that no child has to attend school hungry.”
