Children's Foundation Food & Friends Program
1 in 6 students report they go to school on an empty stomach daily. For many, the meal they receive at school is often the only one they receive that day.
Food & Friends student nutrition programs are not able to run normally, leaving many students who rely on these programs with the proper nutrition needed for a full day of learning.
This initiative fueled by volunteers of the Children’s Foundation and the Orangeville Food Bank packages and delivers boxes of healthy food to hungry minds. The bottom line is a student can’t focus on their studies if their stomachs are grumbling and they don’t have enough nourishment to feed their minds.
