Mamas for Mamas, a national charitable organization with 33 chapters across Canada and over 35,000 members, supports mothers in crisis, and provides ongoing support to low income mothers and their children. Mamas for Mamas assists parents who need help navigating eligible resources – food sources, affordable housing, education, and applying for social supports. They offer a Karma Market where mothers and kids can access clothing, shoes, seasonal wear, formula, diapers, baby furniture and gear. The Mamas for Mamas’ Sustainable Nourishment Program provides at risk families in the Okanagan and around BC with fresh and wholesome food with the goal of reducing the impact that poverty has on these families. Plans are underway to expand this program nation-wide.

“We are thrilled to partner with SunRype through our Sustainable Nourishment Program. SunRype is providing our members with great tasting, and healthy products that both our Mamas and their kids can enjoy,” Shannon Christensen, Founder & Executive Director, Mamas for Mamas said in a press release. “Our partnership with SunRype is just one of the many approaches that Mamas for Mamas is taking to be able to provide our members with the resources they need.”
