Summer Food Program
BECAUSE HUNGER DOESN'T TAKE A SUMMER VACATION
We can now proudly say, ' We feed our kids during the summer months.' Our Summer Food program (or SFP) is the first regionalized program of its kind in Canada.
Schools refer children with limited access to food during the summer months. Volunteers package healthy food such as: soup, whole grains, cereal, dairy, fruit and vegetables. The food supply contains 50% fresh whole foods taking advantage of our bountiful Ontario harvest!
We also provide 2 recipes each week with all the ingredients to make a healthy and delicious family meal!
Thank you to the wonderful groups that came out to pack and deliver the bins to the families. Amazing job everyone!
This program is 100% funded through community donations.
such a great benefit to our family
"This program is such a great benefit to our family. During the summer months a generous volunteer came to our home and gave us groceries for the week. We would get a carton of milk and meat and produce, it meant we would have dinner for 2 days. It was such a tremendous blessing and really would help us out. During the school year my child gets a bag once a week delivered to her school. These weekly bags give a breakfast, fruits and snacks for the weekend. When you are a struggling family and find yourself on the poverty line times can be difficult. The support from Food4Kids has been a tremendous help. Thank you for everything you do."
