The Schema App team helps Food4Kids Guelph!

We’ve got a soft spot for kids, so helping out our local Food4Kids branch was a perfect way to give back!

There were two ways we could make the most impact:

  • Optimize the Food4Kids website

  • Pack food

 

The Website

  1. The first thing that we noticed was that the website wasn’t being indexed, which means that it couldn’t be found by Google. We adjusted the settings so that they would show up in search as well as on the business listings.
  2. Next, we added schema markup to the Homepage, the About page and the Contact page so that the search engines would exactly understand their website content. This would have a positive impact on their website traffic. 
  3. Finally, we coached them to update their website footer to include their social media links, so that we could mark those up too.

And then the fun part … we sent two groups out on different days to pack food for the kids!

Food4Kids provides students, living with severe food insecurity, with healthy food for the weekends. It’s an awesome cause. To learn more about Food4Kids, click here.
