Simply Supper Helps is a warm [and tasty] hug to the Edmonton community.
Simply Supper Helps was founded by a local Edmonton business, Simply Supper, which was simply interested in giving back to the community.
Simply Supper Helps is run by a committee of volunteers, Simply Supper employees, and of course, the owner Monita Chapman.
Through the generosity of Monita and her family, along with numerous volunteers and supporting businesses, Simply Supper Helps has quickly grown into a recognizable Edmonton community outreach group that runs notable and unique events that have a positive community impact.
Simply Supper Helps May Meal Drive
Simply Supper Helps May Meal Drive is in its 3rd year of operation and has delivered over 2,000 meals to families in Edmonton dealing with an extra layer of life challenges.
Simply Supper Helps filled up the freezers of 54 families in 2014, 55 families in 2015 and aims to reach 56 families in 2016 with over 1,100 meals delivered. That will be over 160 local families receiving over 3,200 meals in the last 3 years thanks to hundreds of volunteers and the support of local businesses.
Families selected to be part of this program are dealing with their new ‘normal’ – situations such as a family member fighting a serious illness, having a new baby or, being a victim of a crime or in the worst instance, the loss of a family member.
Simply Supper Helps gives these families a community hug.

Simply Supper Helps Lemonade Stand Day
The Simply Supper Helps Junior Lemon Squeezers in our community have hosted lemonade stands throughout the City of Edmonton for the past 2 years, raising over $26,000 for local charities.
With the creation of this program, our goal was to scatter lemonade stands all over the city in support of the Simply Supper Helps commitment to local charities. Signs were created, tables were decorated and our little, but strong, entrepreneurs put on a fierce sales and marketing campaign: grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends and neighbours received kid-inspired telemarketing calls, tweets, Facebook posts, flyers and other grass roots outreach.
We are simply proud of our Junior Lemon Squeezers:
2014 - Our 30 stands raised over $4,000 for charities in Edmonton.
2015 - Our 75 stands raised over $22,000 for the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation.
Our 2016 Simply Supper Helps Lemonade Stand Day is set for Aug 21st, 2016, and it will once again be in support of the Edmonton Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation.
