Can you imagine tasting a sweet, bursting peach for the first time after a lifetime of cheap, plain toast and cereal?
The cost of fresh fruits and vegetables puts them out of reach for many families - which means there are children growing up right here in Canada who have never tasted many
kinds of fruit.
I Can For Kids is a Calgary-based MAZON Canada grantee that provides 3-day food packs to families of children in need in summer. During the year, these families rely on school breakfast and lunch programs to ensure their children can eat - but when summer holidays come, things get hard. Luckily, MAZON Canada and I Can For Kids are there:
"For the past three years, MAZON Canada has been committed to investing in IC4K's mission to end summer hunger in Calgary. Many kids faced with food insecurity may not always have access to fresh, in season fruit, and for some they tasted nectarines and peaches for the very first time this summer." - I Can For Kids
