FOOD4KIDS provides a weekend supply of healthy foods for elementary school students living in poverty. Each food package contains nutritional, kid-friendly, and easy-to-prepare foods.
Students aged 5-14 are referred directly by their schools to ensure our program reaches those who need it most. Food items are packaged and delivered by FOOD4KIDS volunteers on a weekly basis. The program is 100% driven by volunteers and funded through grants, individual and corporate donations, and fundraising initiatives. A survey conducted in partnership with the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board determined there are over 1,200 who require our program.
