7-Eleven Canada Name Your Price Day

Convenience giant 7-Eleven is bringing its Name Your Price Day for Slurpees to the chain’s Canadian locations.

On Sept. 14th, Slurpee fans can pay what they want for a large Slurpee at any 7-Eleven Canada location, with the proceeds going to Food Banks Canada in their support of local food banks. For every $1 donated, Food Banks Canada is able to provide two meals to those in need.

"Being a good neighbor and supporting the communities we operate in is one of our core values, and it's a sentiment shared by our customers too," says Marc Goodman, VP & GM of 7-Eleven Canada. "Our customers have been so supportive the past 8 years of Slurpee Name Your Price Day, and this year, we hope they'll join us again in the quest to make this our biggest donation event yet."

7-Eleven said that visits to food banks have increased by over 20% since 2019, with Canadians making over 1.3 million visits in March 2021 alone. Customers can try recently released Slurpee flavors like Crush Cactus Catapult, Fanta Dragon Fruit, Blueberry Yuzu Lemonade and Frog Water.

"We are grateful for our partnership with 7-Eleven Canada and to everyone who takes the time to purchase a Slurpee on Sept. 14th," said Kirstin Beardsley, CEO of Food Banks Canada. "These donations come at an important time, when food banks in every region of Canada are stretched to their limits, reporting increased demand, which is expected to remain high as more and more people count on food banks to help them cope with rising inflation."

Based in Irving, Tex., 7-Eleven operates, franchises, and/or licenses more than 13,000 stores in the U.S. and Canada.
