Food4Kids Halton provides packages of healthy food for elementary age kids with limited or no access to food each weekend. The food packages are assembled by volunteers and delivered to schools each Friday to ensure children have nourishment over the weekend. There are over 1,000 children in Halton struggling through each weekend without food.
It’s hard to believe children in our very own community go hungry, but it’s a reality faced by families each and every day. The worsening economy, job loss, illness, marriage breakdown, or newcomers who seek safe refuge in Canada, are some of the reasons families will turn to Food4Kids Halton for support.
Food4Kids Halton is funded through donations or one-time grants. While hunger exists around the world, we address hunger in our home community.
