we're about kids


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 found in February 2023 to determine the need and scope of developing a weekend feeding program for at-risk children within Toronto

We are in the development stages and hope to start feeding children in the 2023-24 school year. We follow a strong program model that is located in 5 other regions.

A program model was developed with a focus on 3 distinct areas:
1. Food provided in food packages would be healthy
2. Each child in the home would receive their own food package, to ensure nourishment of all children in the home
3. To ensure a non-stigmatizing process to distribute food packages to participants

We need your support to ensure funds & volunteerism is available to meet the needs of our community.
