To ensure that children aren’t forgotten during the summer months, we launched Feeding Our Future 2020: Resource Kits for Children and Families. This “Camp in a Box” will be filled with ingredients for healthy lunches, activities, and food education resource.
From July to August, our teams of volunteers and partners are assembling and distributing 1600 kits a week to families across the GTA.

We would like to recognize the invaluable contributions of our key program partners:
Kitchen 24: Kitchen 24 has agreed to host Second Harvest and our volunteers in their space to store and pack these family wellness kits 5 days per week. We are so thankful for the accommodations they have made for us to make this program a success.
Rainbow Plate: Janet Nezon of Rainbow Plate is supporting children and youth in our communities by providing food literacy resources, web content, and food-related recreation for families receiving these kits. We are so excited about the great things that will come out of this partnership this summer!
And giant thank you so much to our generous supporters of the Feeding Our Future for making this program possible: President’s Choice Children’s Charity, George Weston Ltd. and Weston Foods, Tippet Foundation, CUPE 3902, Otto & Marie Pick Foundation, Hasty Cart, and Sofina
