lunch money week, lunch money month!


Lunch Money Days is a city-wide campaign that asks Torontonians to run fundraisers in support of Second Harvest and donating the equivalent of your lunch money.

From their site: "Every $10 raised allows Second Harvest to rescue and deliver enough food to provide 20 healthy meals for those in need, so lettuce give! This year, Lunch Money Days will be celebrated the week of February 25, 2013."

For a 2nd year, Dufflet Pastries will donate $1.00 from every 4” Cowboy Cookie sold (price $1.80 each) for the entire month of February at all 3 Dufflet locations.

What's in a Cowboy Cookie? Chunks of dark chocolate and marshmallows, raisins, coconut, peanuts and oats.

Last year, over 250 Toronto companies ran Lunch Money Day fundraisers and raised dollars to provide for 675,000 meals.

Please visit to find out more and how you can participate and volunteer and follow them on Twitter @2ndHarvestTO
