Everyday heroes making a difference

By Philip De Souza


Aidan at bbqCould you imagine waking up, getting ready for your day and heading out to work or school or maybe that morning run, but not having one thing to eat the whole morning?

Well, that’s the case for many kids and I’m not talking about kids in some far off third world country, I’m talking about kids right here in Canada – I know… crazy thought… but it’s a reality for so many.

I was recently introduced to a number of dedicated individuals who are making it their mission to see all that change. Their shared vision is to see kids in remote regions right across the nation start their day with a healthy breakfast

They’re individuals like Denis Sacks, Richard Glover and Marc Guay from Pepsico Canada– and they’re joined by many other change-agents from their organization.

These everyday heroes work closely with the ONEXONE team to map out a plan that will see healthy Quaker and Dole products reach children in need. The logistics of getting these meals to the remote regions is in itself a challenge – but it gets done.

We at ONEXONE have been very fortunate to have this committed group on board to help serve more than 600,000 breakfasts in the 2014-2015 school year alone – just incredible!

But the fact remains, there are still many children in need and this is where we’re calling on more everyday heroes to join our mission of hope.

Do you work for an organization that values corporate social responsibility? Well, we need your help! 

Why not suggest the ONEXONE Breakfast Program – we’ll even send you a full kit to present to your leadership team.

Of course, you can also become a ONEXONE Ambassador and share our story of hope, help us raise funds by hosting a party in our honour or simply TEXT “OXO” to 30333 to donate $10 (don’t forget to share that text info to your friends and family on social media).

Be part of the solution!
