For every Tenfed item that is sold, TEN meals are provided to feed hungry children around the globe with the help of our partner, Kids Against Hunger Canada.
Tenfed is more than just an apparel line. It’s about having meaning and purpose behind what you choose to wear. It’s about having style while changing our community and our world at the exact same time. Tenfed Co-Founders Kory McLaughlin and Mike Wallis offer unique yet simple everyday apparel. From T-shirts and hoodies, to snapbacks and toques, you can find inspired and unique choices that will enhance your look and your vibe, while enhancing the lives of people in need.
We pride ourselves on creating sustainable clothing in an ethical manner right here in Canada. Our T-shirts are made of an unbelievably soft cotton/poly blend; truly a staple in the closet that will last for years.
Our mission is to take action on the immediate need of feeding as many hungry children as possible, while creating long term solutions to better the lives of others and the world we live in, by ethically creating sustainable clothing and providing ten nutritious meals for every item sold.
Kids Against Hunger Canada is a registered Canadian charity, that packages and ships highly nutritious, life-saving meals to starving and malnourished children within Canada and developing countries around the world.
Kids Against Hunger Canada keeps 1/3 of the food local, here in Canada (they provide for food banks, shelters, reserves in the northern part of Canada, the Salvation Army, etc.) and the other 2/3 of the food gets shipped abroad to underdeveloped countries.
Since Kids Against Hunger started in 1999, they have shipped food to more than 60 countries.
The meal ingredients are formulated by food scientists to provide a rich source of easily digestible protein, carbohydrates and vitamins needed by an undernourished child’s body and mind.
The meals consist of:
Our apparel is made using some of the softest and sustainable fabrics in the world; this results in the most comfortable clothing that you'll ever wear. We use unique blends of bamboo, organic cotton, cotton and polyester to ensure quality and comfort with every garment we produce.
It is very important to us to have our clothing made ethically where workers are paid fairly and treated with respect. While there is a general belief in the industry that all clothing manufactured overseas is unethical and irresponsible, we do believe that all clothing companies have the ability to change that by only working with factories that are both ethical and environmentally responsible. All of our clothing is manufactured in factories that are WRAP approved - this means they are audited regularly (unannounced) to ensure they commit to fair hours of work, have no child labour in their factories, provide their employees fair compensation based on the local labour laws and commit to a healthy and safe workplace.
Educating people about making ethical choices and avoiding the “Fast Fashion” world is a big part of our vision. Instead of looking solely at price and style, we want them to look deeper into it: Is it made ethnically? What fabrics are being used? What are the values of the company that created the clothing?
We want our customers to know that they are not only helping feed hungry children with each purchase of Tenfed apparel, but they are also supporting responsible manufacturing practices.
