The Friday prior to Winter Break is always a tough one for children living with severe food insecurity. The thought of spending two weeks without nourishment is enough to cause fear in many of our vulnerable kids.
Winter Break is a time when children should be sharing in the joy of family and friends. They should not be worrying about where their next meal is coming from.
In 2018-19, Food4Kids Waterloo Region is providing
150 children with nourishing food for the 2 weeks of Winter Break.
Bins of food will be delivered directly to the childrens' homes and will include, fresh vegetables and fruit, bread, cereal, milk, eggs, cheese, yogurt, grains, and other nourishing snacks to support the children through until school starts again.
We are excited to say that the opportunity has been offered to some of our local families and they have trusted us with this amazing opportunity, so that their children will look forward to the two weeks with, instead of without.
Help us make a difference
this Winter Break for our kids!
$100 will provide food for one child for 14 days.
