HWDSB Schools Take Home Prizes in #eatABeet Contest for Food4Kids Hamilton

Last month, the Hamilton Professional Fire Fighters Association (HPFFA) – Local 288, launched the #eatAbeet social media challenge to help raise funds and awareness for Food4Kids Hamilton (and to “beet” childhood hunger in Hamilton.)Image of Strathcona eat A beet contest winners

Sponsored by Tandia Financial Credit Union, the #eatAbeet campaign challenges community members to eat a beet or other healthy snack, post a video or photo to social media challenging others, and donate to Food4Kids Hamilton. The campaign came to a close on March 3, having raised over $25,000!

In addition to the #eatAbeet challenge fundraiser, the HPFFA Local 288 hosted a special Hamilton school contest in which submissions were entered to win $6,000 in prizes for classrooms, programs, teams, clubs, etc.

Congratulations to Strathcona Elementary School for winning 1st place for $3,000, and A.M. Cunningham Elementary School for placing 3rd for $1,000.

Congratulations to our three winning elementary schools! You can view their entries on the Food4Kids Hamilton #eatAbeet website. We also encourage you to take a look at some media below, as winners were recently surprised with the exciting news.
