Building Futures for Children: 2021-22

Hunger doesn’t go away unless drastic change is made in the lives of families who live with chronic hunger. Here, in Waterloo Region, there are thousands of children who live in the cycle of poverty. They have no control over their circumstances. Providing nutritious food is a necessity for these vulnerable children. 

Following are the funding opportunities for organizations and individuals who through philanthropic action, will make a significant difference in the lives of children, living with chronic hunger.
