Craving a Slurpee and also looking for a way to support a good cause?
On September 14th, Slurpee fans can pay what they want for a large Slurpee at any 7-Eleven locations and 100% of the donations will go to Food Banks Canada in support of local food banks.
Now that’s something to feel good about!
Whether it’s $2, $5, or $20, your Slurpee purchase will help Canadians living with food insecurity. For every $1 donated, Food Banks Canada is able to provide two meals to those in need.
“Being a good neighbour and supporting the communities we operate in is one of our core values, and it’s a sentiment shared by our customers too,” says Marc Goodman, VP & GM of 7-Eleven Canada.
“Our customers have been so supportive the past 8 years of Slurpee Name Your Price Day, and this year, we hope they’ll join us again in the quest to make this our biggest donation event yet.”
According to Food Banks Canada, visits to food banks have increased over 20% since 2019. In March 2021 alone, Canadians made over 1.3 million visits.
“We are grateful for our partnership with 7-Eleven® Canada and to everyone who takes the time to purchase a Slurpee® on September 14th,” said Kirstin Beardsley, Chief Executive Officer of Food Banks Canada.
“These donations come at an important time, when food banks in every region of Canada are stretched to their limits, reporting increased demand, which is expected to remain high as more and more people count on food banks to help them cope with rising inflation.”
