TORONTO, ON–Joe Fresh is supporting President’s Choice Children’s Charity with a limited edition, 21-piece capsule collection that helps kids go far, not hungry. With the purchase of every Joe Fresh X President’s Choice Children’s Charity item a portion of the proceeds will be donated to President’s Choice Children’s Charity to help provide nourishment to kids in need. The donation will assist the charity with reaching its goal of feeding one million Canadian children annually and facilitating food education and skills for kids in schools across Canada. The collection includes items for babies, toddlers and kids and will be available online and in select stores on August 16, 2022.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Joe Fresh on their first capsule collection that helps Canadian kids,” says Lisa Battistelli, Executive Director at President’s Choice Children’s Charity. “Hunger can make it difficult for children to concentrate, can affect their attendance and worsen learning outcomes. Having partnerships like this allows us to help even more children facing food insecurity.”
President’s Choice Children’s Charity aims to remove hunger as a barrier for a happy life and educate children about food and nutrition. In 2021, over 122 million meals and snacks were provided in schools across Canada to children in need. Through the Power Full Kids program in schools across Canada children are not only provided with good food to fuel them, but also learn food skills that teach them to grow and cook. While back-to-school shopping this year, you can help contribute to the programs at Presidents Choice Children’s Charity that continue to provide meals and snacks to hundreds of thousands of Canadian children.
“Helping Canadians Live Life Well is a priority for us at Joe Fresh. As we head into a busy back-to-school season we know it can be difficult for families that face food insecurity. We are thrilled to be teaming up with President’s Choice Children’s Charity to help address this challenge for children and their families across the country,” says Ian Freedman, President at Joe Fresh.
The capsule collection was made for babies, toddlers and kids and includes a fruity-sweet selection of t-shirts, sweaters, dresses, pants and more. With the purchase of items within this collection, a portion of the proceeds of up to $75,000 will be donated to help President’s Choice Children’s Charity.
