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."
