Eat4Eight: Teen Mom Budget Challenge

September 28-30, 2020


We know you want to support teen moms, but have you ever had to live the life of a teen mom? The young moms at Massey Centre are often sole-support parents who are juggling parenthood, school, healing from trauma, and learning to live independently. All this while living on a very tight budget. The young moms often have less than $8 a day for food. Sounds easy? You try it! Join us for Eat4Eight – Teen Mom Food Challenge!  




What is it?


Eat4Eight is a challenge to eat off the food budget of a teen mom for 3 days, while raising funds for young moms and babies at Massey Centre. You can spend up to $8 a day on food. The challenge will run from September 28-30, 2020.   Curious about what the experience will be like? Here are reflections from our Vice President’s journey in the 2019 challenge

You can sign up as an individual or team right here. It’s free to sign up. You will be directed to create your own personalized fundraising page. Never fundraised before? We’ll make it easy by sending you tips and toolkits to make your fundraising a breeze.  


Why should I sign up?


This challenge will raise important funds and awareness for Massey Centre. Your support will help young moms (age 13-25) and their babies.
