Mealshare builds goodwill in restaurant industry

,

More and more Greater Victoria restaurants are partnering with Mealshare to help provide food for those experiencing homelessness and extreme poverty.

In Victoria, Mealshare meals benefit Our Place and Save the Children. Our Place serves more than 1,500 meals a day on a tight budget, and can make a meal for between $1.10 and $1.50. Mealshare just added Victoria restaurant partners, The Village (Estevan Village and Royal Oak), Foo Asian Street Food and The Clay Pigeon. Juno said getting restaurants to join is getting easier now that the service has been operating for more than a year.
