Starting today, Smile Cookies are back at Tim Hortons in Cochrane and all the proceeds from the sale of each $1.50 cookie will go on to support the Cochrane Activettes Food Bank.

Nancy Etcheverry, Cochrane Tim Hortons owner says they have already seen huge momentum for the cookie sales. 

“We have really engaged a lot of our community partners and other businesses this year and we've had a huge amount of support already.”

“The businesses were placing advance orders for large amounts of cookies, it was fantastic and really looking forward to increasing our donation this year. Last year we gave upwards of $18,000 so we hope to be able to exceed the $20,000 mark this year.”

Volunteers will also be busy throughout the week decorating the cookies to keep up with the demand. 

“[The Cochrane Activettes] were so helpful last year and coming out in mass and helping us decorate cookies. We've got a large amount of volunteers coming in each day to help us decorate.”

Cochranites can pick up a Smile Cookie at any of the three local Tim Hortons locations starting today until May 5, 2024.
