Community Impact Report

For the Love of Kids

Community Impact Report – July 1st, 2021 to June 30th, 2022

In the last year, we accomplished more together than ever before in the fight to end childhood hunger. We could not have done this without your help, and we are grateful for your unrelenting support.

Community Impact

We are excited to share how your support over the last year was able to help more kids living with severe food insecurity. By providing healthy food on a Friday for the weekend, or a larger box of food for a school break, you not only helped feed hungry tummies but also gave at-risk kids hope for a brighter future.

It’s hard to believe we grew from delivering 17 food packages in 2016 to hungry kids only on weekends to providing 1,000 nutritious food packages to kids on 40 weekends AND 90 days of school breaks at the end of June 2022. That’s 170 days a year! This growth could not have been possible without each and every one of you – a true team effort. Take pride in your part in reaching this epic goal!

Volunteers are at the Heart of Food4Kids Waterloo Region

Volunteers make feeding hungry children possible by choosing to give their time to help kids in our community. Our volunteers inspire us with their energy and passion, to keep our program and office running, and so much more. We couldn’t do this without their commitment!
