Breakfast in bed for a good cause

Two local companies are joining forces to bring residents breakfast in bed, with proceeds going to help feed children in Victoria schools.

Two local companies are joining forces to bring residents breakfast in bed, with proceeds going to help feed children in Victoria schools.

As part of the pilot project, the Apple Box and Goatmeal are delivering breakfasts, including gingerbread pancakes, fruit, coffee and burritos made from fresh, organic and locally-sourced fruit and veggies to hungry Victoria residents.

All of the proceeds from the meals will be donated to the breakfast and snack programs for Shoreline, Macaulay and Vic West Elementary schools, as well as Rock Heights Middle School.

In its inaugural year, they hope raise $6,000, which equals 100 Breakfast in Bed meals sold each Saturday.

Breakfast in Bed is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 12 and 19. Advanced orders can be taken at theapplebox.ca.
