Hundreds of millions of people don’t have enough food to feed their families.

We’re on a mission to change that.

Join Penny Oleksiak and Thrive for Good on Thursday, September 21st and be part of a movement that is eradicating hunger and poverty.

Thrive for Good empowers people to grow health and step out of poverty.

2 billion people are reliant on a diet that delivers little more than calories. Without life-giving vitamins, minerals and micronutrients, kids can’t develop. People can’t fight disease and stay healthy enough to provide for their families.

But the best growing conditions — and the greatest opportunity for change — are found in some of the world’s poorest regions.

Thrive is teaching and equipping people to grow an abundance of healthy, organic, disease-fighting foods.

Join us for an extraordinary evening and help make a difference. Get your ticket today.

Penny Oleksiak Medals

In collaboration with Penny Oleksiak

Penny Oleksiak gained international recognition after winning four medals – one gold, one silver, and two bronze – at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. At the Tokyo 2020 Games, she won three medals (one silver and two bronze), officially making her the most decorated Canadian Olympian of all time.

She has partnered with our two foundational corporate partners, Natural Calm Canada and Bolton’s Naturals. And in 2022, Penny became an ambassador for Thrive for Good to help fight against the global food crisis.

“Without nutrition,” said Oleksiak, “ I couldn’t have achieved my goals. Too many Canadians and people around the world are not living their best lives because of poor nutrition. Natural Calm and Thrive for Good are helping to change that.”
