Lunch Bag Program

We are running a lunch bag program for kids / youth in need. Our community has hundreds of children and youth who usually eat at school every day. Almost 40% of our young population already lives below the poverty line and the current situation has made this situation worse. This is your opportunity to make a small difference in the life of a young person by providing food during this crisis.

Our goal is to distribute up to 1000 Lunches per week. The cost is approx $4000 a week. A big thanks to the United Way and Breakfast Clubs of Canada for sponsoring this program as well. We are very grateful to all those who have been donating at making this program possible.We will continue to run this program until school returns in September. We are hoping as restrictions ease the need will decrease, but we will continue meeting the existing need until the end of August.
