Support Mental Health Resources in Canada
1 in 5 Canadians will be faced with a mental health crisis in any given year.
The stigma and limited access to care means many won’t get the help they need and it is from this societal need that Kitchens4Missions (K4M) emerged.
K4M was founded in 2018 by Business for Better Society as a special project to help raise funds and awareness for mental health organisations in Canada. Through “food philanthropy” events, K4M has raised funds for accessible counselling services and other resources around mental wellness for the Canadian charities A Dollar A Day and the Greater Victoria Counselling Centre.
As we continue to maneuver through the new global reality, K4M has started its next chapter as an independent organisation with the on-going support of BBS and exciting new partnerships with organisations such as the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP).
K4M continues to work hard for Canadian mental health charities and planning future projects in collaboration with their partners. This cause page is dedicated to building awareness for the incredible work of A Dollar A Day and the Citizens’ Counselling Centre.
Donations received through the K4M dedicated cause page will support the work of CASP.
