Eat a beet to raise funds for Food4Kids

First Published:

Tim Bolen ate some beets for a good cause.

This is the second year for the #eatabeet challenge for Food4Kids, and it’s easy to participate. The rules are as follows:

1.Post a photo or video of you eating a beet.
2. Donate $25 to Food4Kids, or whatever you can donate.
3. Challenge others to participate and donate.

Food4Kids provides food to kids who don’t have access to it. They provide nutritious food to kids in schools in a private way so the kids can receive the food without kids knowing.

During the pandemic they had to pivot, as did the way funds were raised to help them. Instead of a hockey game put on by the Hamilton Firefighters for Charity, the #eatabeet challenge was thought up, and was so successful, why not do it again?!

The Eat a Beet challenge is on now until February 21st.
