Over 2,500 children throughout Waterloo Region live with severe food insecurity. They do not have access to the nourishment they require to thrive, mentally, physically or socially.
Every weekend, and daily during Winter, Spring and Summer breaks, Food4Kids Waterloo Region provides nourishing food to every child, 14 years and younger in a severely food insecure home. 16 - 22 items, including proteins, fresh fruit and vegetables, milk and cheese products, cereals and grains, juice and other healthy items are packaged by volunteers and provided to children leaving school and going home to empty cupboards.
ONE CHILD was created to eliminate risk and vulnerability one child at a time. It costs $1,000 to support one child for a year. We are in need of support for the 570 children we are feeding weekly in 2019-20.
Support ONE CHILD with a donation of $1,000 or $85.00 per month.
"The benefits of this program to our families are too many to mention, but the long term result will be a reduction in risk and vulnerability." -- Principal
