Donation and Tour of Calgary Nonprofit, Inn From the Cold
On May 7th, Heart of Baby Gourmet (HOBG) donated several boxes of Baby Gourmet’s Puffies, an organic quinoa snacks, to local Calgary nonprofit, Inn From the Cold. In addition to the donation, we were given a tour of the facility and learned all about how Inn From the Cold is striving to help vulnerable families, and children facing homelessness.
“Working with such generous donors as Baby Gourmet, we’re able to be the first line of emergency food support for families and individuals facing crisis” said Heather Morley, Executive Director at Inn From the Cold. “The donation from Baby Gourmet aligns well with our mission, which is: together, we provide shelter, sanctuary, and healing to assist homeless children and their families achieve independence.”
“Heart of Baby Gourmet is centered around our belief that every parent and child deserves access to high-quality and nutritious food,” said Michael Watt, CEO of Baby Gourmet. “That is why we have partnered with these amazing organizations who are helping our communities most vulnerable infants.”
According to recent data from Food Banks Canada, thirteen percent of Canadians live in a state of food insecurity, which means they do not have reliable access to adequate amounts of safe, nutritious food. 35.2% of those relying on food banks nationally are children, when they only represent 20.0% of the population.
To date, Heart of Baby Gourmet has donated 178,491 meals, with a mission to reach one million meals donated by 2025. With monthly product donations throughout the year, HOBG will continue its support of these community organizations that provide meals, support and shelter for infants and their families.
