The Uptown Chop Chop restaurants are extremely happy to support Lunch Connection. $1 from EVERY Chop Chop dish sold is accounted for and given directly to this cause. It is very gratifying as providers and, as the happily consuming public, to know that through indulging in this way, school children are being fed.
The Lunch Connection provides free hot lunch programs that serve deserving children and youth of Saint John.
Three Lunch Connections have been established to support the students of local schools in vulnerable neighbourhoods. Currently, there are a total of approximately 450 children registered in the Lunch Connection hot lunch program and more than 45,000 meals are served each year!
For more information about this program, please visit their website.
