Feeding Our Future

To ensure that children aren’t forgotten during the summer months, we launched Feeding Our Future 2021: Resource Kits for Children and Families, thanks to the leading support of Cadillac Fairview.

From July to August, 176 volunteers and partners assembled and distributed 12,995 kits for more than 2,500 kids and families in high priority neighbourhoods across the GTA. This “Camp in a Box” was filled with ingredients for healthy lunches, plus activities and education resources, like our Educator’s Guide to Food Waste Prevention, which brought smiles to hundreds of faces. You can access the Educator’s Guide for free from the Resource Library in our Training site.
