About Us

A 10 year old boy waited outside the locked doors of a school breakfast program. The program was to start at 8:15 and the child stood outside at 7:15 in the dark, in the cold and alone. He explained he had not had any food on the weekend and was hungry. Could he please have some food? This child inspired the launch of the Food4Kids program. 

The reality of child hunger became clear through this experience. A steering committee was formed in Hamilton, Ontario November 2011 to determine the need and scope of developing a weekend feeding program for at-risk children . After successfully facilitating the program for one year in Hamilton ,the  program was extended into Halton in 2013. We are pleased to bring the program into the Niagara area. The Food4Kids program model  focuses on 3 distinct areas:

Food provided in food packages would be healthy

Each child in the home would receive their own food package, to ensure nourishment of all children in the home

The program model would be developed to ensure a non-stigmatizing process to distribute food to participants

In Niagara region there are 1,500 children that need our service. We plan to begin our pilot program at the end of January 2018.
