This is not just a meal. It’s the start to a healthier lifestyle.

November 25, 2020

On March 14th, Madison got her children ready for the first of many days at home. Soon, the business where she worked was closed due to COVID-19; she became one of the many people who lost their jobs this year. With two children at home and a new baby on the way, she began to worry about putting food on the table. 

That’s when BridgeWay stepped in. Madison received grocery gift cards to keep her family fed and healthy and pre-natal vitamins to help her unborn child. BridgeWay’s Social Worker pointed her to a local food bank, while our Dietitian found her affordable and nutritious recipes. Her family loves sitting down for a meal together—her new bean salad recipe is a favourite. 

Madison and her children are one of the low-income families who were hit hardest by COVID-19 this year. She draws hope in these difficult times knowing that others care and support her. 

We can reach more parents like Madison. With your help we can take the next step.

This Giving Tuesday, we ask you to give a meal today and launch the love of cooking for a lifetime. BridgeWay Cooks is a virtual support group and cooking tutorial. Families like Madison’s cook together with our Dietitian. They learn, laugh and cook nutritious, affordable, child-friendly recipes from a free meal kit—while also modelling healthy cooking habits for their children.  It’s more than a meal; its a step towards a healthier lifestyle.

Parents and caregivers already know the importance of good nutrition to a child’s mental and physical development. With your support, we can help to make healthy cooking more accessible to all families and instill that lifetime love.

$15buys nutritious ingredients for a meal that a family of 4 will cook together.
