The cost to feed a child is $15 per week or $600 for an entire school year.
Muskoka Food4Kids started in April 2018 with 60 participants. With your help, as of September 2020, we have expanded our reach to provide healthy food options in eight schools in the Muskoka region.

I never thought our family would depend on others for food
"I never thought our family would depend on others for food. With a medical problem, I had no choice but to quit work. As a single parent raising 2 great kids, there is barely enough money for rent, little money for food and absolutely no money for extras. When the school asked if I would like to involve my kids in the Food4Kids program, all I could do was cry. Knowing my children have food brings comfort. The fresh fruits, soups and healthy snacks are appreciated. Thank you for this service. The volunteers at Food4Kids are angels."
my kids are happier and miss less school
"I grew up in a family where you take care of your own. After my marriage broke up, I had $50 for food for me and my two kids. I would not go to the food bank because I worked when they were open. We just survived. Then the school let me know about Food4Kids. My kids are happier, miss less school and are not sick all the time. It is fun when they come home from school on Friday so excited about what food they will have. Parents like me need this help."
