"He arrived each day at school with one piece of white bread... that was moldy."

We wish we could say this was an isolated occurrence, but there are over 1500 kids in Niagara with limited or no access to food each weekend.
Food4Kids provides packages of healthy food for children up to 14 years with limited or no access to food each weekend.
 
The food packages are assembled by volunteers and delivered to schools each Friday to ensure children have nourishment over the weekend. There are over 1500 children in Niagara struggling through each weekend without food.
It’s hard to believe children in our very own community go hungry, but it's a reality faced by children each and every day. It’s not that parents do not want to feed their kids….they can’t. The worsening economy, job loss, working poor, illness, mental health, marriage breakdown and those fleeing their home country to seek safe refuge in Canada, are some of the reasons a parent will turn to Food4Kids for support.

Food4Kids is funded  through  donations or one-time grants. While hunger exists around the world, it is our hope to address  hunger in our home community.

TESTIMONIALS... SAY IT ALL

"When you are a struggling family and find yourself on the poverty line times can be difficult."

my kids are always so happy to open their bags

"My kids are always so happy to open their bags of food when they home from school. When you struggle to put food on the table, you sometimes don't get to choose what you're going to eat. These bags give a little bit of choice back to my kids and I couldn't be more thankful."
