“While Toonies for Tummies is new to our stores and to the west, the concept of giving back to communities is not; it’s ingrained in our culture and so evident the many communities we serve. We’re excited to be the first western retailer to support this vital campaign and nourish the futures of the tens of thousands of children who stand to benefit.” – Darrell Jones, President, Save-On-Foods
