Ricky’s Family-style Restaurants and Breakfast Club of Canada partner to serve healthy breakfasts to youth with third annual O’Canada Pancake Campaign
Every maple leaf pancake purchased from June 24-July 1 will help to provide healthy breakfasts to Canadian youth
Vancouver, BC, June 10, 2019 — Ricky’s Family-style Restaurants have partnered with Breakfast Club of Canada to provide youth in need with a healthy breakfast, with the return of their O’Canada Pancakes campaign, just in time to celebrate Canada Day. For the their consecutive year, Ricky’s guests can add a special O’Canada pancake to their meal to celebrate Canada’s Birthday for just $1.50 before 11 a.m, from June 24-July 1, 2019. Full proceeds from every pancake sold will be donated directly to Breakfast Club of Canada.
The O’Canada pancakes are made with the same delicious pancake batter that Ricky’s fans know and love, but with a red maple leaf in the middle. Served loaded with strawberries and whipped cream, O’Canada pancakes are perfect for patriotic pancake lovers of all ages and an easy way to help Breakfast Club of Canada feed Canadian youth!
“Breakfast Club of Canada continues to be an incredibly important part of Rickys’ story, especially with breakfast being such a large part of what we do,” says Stacey Hansson, senior vice-president of Ricky’s Family-style Restaurants. “We began working with Breakfast Club of Canada in 2015, and we look forward to continuing to provide support to children in need.”
The Breakfast Club of Canada’s mission is to nourish children’s potential by making sure that as many of them have access to a healthy morning meal before school as possible, in an environment that allows their self-esteem to grow and flourish. Since beginning their partnership, Ricky’s has raised $250,000 for the organization.
“We’re delighted to continue our year-round partnership with Ricky’s Family-style Restaurants this summer with the O’Canada Pancakes campaign,” says Benjamin Neumer, senior development advisor at Breakfast Club of Canada. “They continue to be a huge supporter of our work to provide children with healthy breakfasts.”
Made with the same quality ingredients Ricky’s fans have enjoyed for years, the O’Canada Pancakes, featuring a red maple leaf in the centre, will be available for a limited time, from June 24-July 1 before 11 a.m. at Ricky’s locations across Canada, for just $1.50 per pancake.
Those unable to make it to Ricky’s during the campaign need not worry, as they can contribute year round by ordering the Breakfast Club sandwich, which donates $1.00 per sandwich to Breakfast Club of Canada as well!
