  TORONTO, ONTARIO, Apr 05 (Marketwired) --
Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada is thrilled to receive a significant
donation from easyhome Ltd. (TSX:EH) to renovate kitchens in Boys and
Girls Clubs across Canada, thus boosting their ability to provide
nutritious food options and teach kids how to prepare healthy meals.

    "Each year, Boys and Girls Clubs provide young people with more than
5,000,000 healthy meals and snacks that boost their energy and keep them
active and engaged during the critical after-school period," said Pam
Jolliffe, president and CEO, Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada.

    "In many ways, the kitchen is the centrepiece of our Clubs - It's a place
where our young people learn how to prepare meals, discover the
importance of good nutrition and develop life-long healthy eating habits.
It's a place where they re-fuel after a long day of school, socialize
with their peers and steady themselves for the evening activities
including homework help through our education programs, sports,
leadership development, and so much more."

    Lisa Ray, host, Top Chef Canada, Star of Oscar nominated film 'Water' and
Wellness Advocate understands the importance of good nutrition,
especially for growing bodies.

    "What I have learned as part of my personal health story is that Food
Matters. Since becoming the CEO of my health, I've connected the dots and
believe it's crucial that kids get a head start in life with nutritional
food which leads to better life choices. I'm thrilled with the easybites
campaign and the possibilities: that the kids can claim life-long healthy
eating habits as part of their birthright" said Ms. Ray, who was with Ms.
Jolliffe at the sponsorship presentation. 

    "As a long-standing supporter of Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada, we are
delighted to provide this investment and enhance up to 10 easybite
kitchens and equipment in Boys and Girls Clubs across Canada each year,"
said David Ingram, President and Chief Executive Officer, easyhome Ltd.

Canada since 2004. easyhome Ltd. Provides an endowment fund at the
