As one of I Can for Kids’ earliest supporters, Save-On-Foods understands the importance of providing children and youth with nutritious food.
“Save-On-Foods supports I Can for Kids because we believe it is an exceptional program that helps many children in need, and provides nutritious food to thousands of children that might otherwise go hungry,” explains Mark Salhany, Store Manager at Save-On-Foods’ Calgary Heritage location.
Salhany explains that Save-On-Foods likes to be involved in a variety of different charities and organizations to help as many people as possible.
“We are passionate about supporting our local communities. Our friends and neighbours are a critical part of the Save-On-Foods family and being able to help our communities in Western Canada thrive now and in the future is so important to Save-On-Foods.”

Salhany says Save-On-Foods saw I Can for Kids as an opportunity to support children and youth in need throughout Calgary, as well as give back to their community when they became involved four years ago.
“I Can for Kids is a great partner with a fantastic mission to help more and more children every year. With its focus on nutrition and child health and wellbeing, I Can for Kids is a natural fit for Save-On-Foods. Our company supports thousands of local and national causes across Western Canada each year because giving back is a critical piece of being a good neighbour, and it’s our job to go the extra mile in every community we serve, every day. Working with I Can for Kids is one of the ways we strive to give back.
“[I Can for Kids] is a well-organized, passionate group that is able to help feed thousands of hungry children. We share I Can for Kids’ dedication to providing quality, nutritious food to the kids in our communities, and we are thrilled we can help make a difference in the lives of our friends and neighbours together with this amazing organization.”
