Summer Feeding Program
We are often asked, 'What happens to kids during the summer months?' We can proudly say, ' We feed our kids during the summer months.' Our Summer Feeding program (or SFP) is the first regionalized program of its kind in Canada.
Schools refer children with limited access to food during the summer months. Volunteers package healthy food such as: soup, whole grains, cereal, dairy, fruit and vegetables. The food supply contains 50% fresh whole foods taking advantage of our bountiful Ontario harvest!
We are also excited to share, that we included a recipe book along with all the ingredients for our families to enjoy creating together. For 8 weeks our families got to create Healthy pizza, Greek pasta salad, homemade chicken soup and many more delicious meals!
In 2018, we provided food for 119 families
In 2019, we provided food for 137 families
Thank you to the wonderful groups that came out to pack and deliver the bins to the families. Amazing job everyone!
