Get 5 Kids Meals for $5 with a Boston Pizza Kids Card
For more than 25 years, Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects has worked with some incredible organizations to give kids in need guidance and friendship with inspirational role model programs across Canada.
The gift of a positive role model can mean the world to those who need a little guidance to get on the right track to success in-school and outside of the classroom. While my daughter is still just a toddler, I understand the importance of providing a stable and supportive home. Even things like keeping my cool when there’s opportunity to panic is important, or the simple things like saying please and thank you will help her in later years.
I’ve had many people to look up to throughout my formative years. While I wasn’t in any formal programs, everyone from my friends, teachers and family have played an important part in guiding me to where I am today.
You can get involved by heading to the Boston Pizza location or the Kids Card website donating just $5 to the Future Prospects program. In return, you get 5 FREE kids meals, plus 1 more when you register your card. Your $5 donation equals 1 hour with a role model for someone who really needs it.
That’s a $35 value. Each kid’s meal includes and entrée, side, drink, dessert and activity pack. I think I want one of those too! Seriously though, why don’t adult meals come with colouring books?
But hurry, the Boston Pizza Kids Cards are only available until October 1st.
These role model programs come via these incredible charities and organizations:
Big Brothers Big Sisters
Big Brothers Big Sisters work with youth who often don’t have access to other programs. All across Canada, 1000s of young people have benefited from the guidance of a mentor.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding research in Type 1 diabetes. Boston Pizza’s partnership with JDRF has helped fund the development of an artificial pancreas and the youth program which provides mentorship to young people living with T1D.
Kids Help Phone
Kids Help Phone is a leading charity who are offering the only Canada-wide professional counseling service that kids can trust and access any time.
Live Different’s mission is to inspire a lifestyle that cares about people instead of material possessions, focusing on what’s truly important.
I think we could all do that a little more!

The Rick Hansen Foundation’s mission is to inspire leaders and create a global movement to liberate the amazing potential of people with disabilities. Through their partnership with Boston Pizza, the Rick Hansen School Program reaches over 500,000 students across Canada each year to learn about inclusion for people with disabilities.
