Our Scan Away Hunger™ Campaign runs throughout November and December each year at participating stores in London. It’s a vital way to support our clients given that approximately 200,000 meals are served yearly through three of our five branches.
The Scan Away Hunger campaign ran at more than 20 partner locations in London during the months of November and December. And on April 6, 2018, we revealed the preliminary campaign total at the London Lightning playoff game.
This year, the campaign goal was $110,000; that’s over 35,000 meals! So, how much did we actually raise?
The final, total amount raised is $122,000! That surpassed the goal and is the highest recorded amount to date for the Scan Away Hunger campaign! That $122,000 is worth over 39,000 meals for those most vulnerable in our community, and will be an enormous help to those experiencing homelessness, poverty, and hunger in our area.
A special thank you goes out to the location partners and group partners and a BIG thank you goes out to every person who scanned a way to a meal. This incredible outcome wouldn’t have been possible without all of you!
If you missed the chance to give during this campaign, the opportunity still exists to help those experiencing homelessness in London:
