When the final bell rings before the holidays, many kids rush home excited for their winter break.
Do you remember those times? Racing home with that pure excitement. Whether it was about presents, play dates with friends, or simply the freedom of no school, you couldn’t wait to get home.
What if you were a kid dreading the 16 days off because you didn’t have access to food from the school nutrition program.
And you were a kid who didn’t have enough food to eat at home.
That is the reality for over 3,000 kids in the Waterloo Region. They are facing empty cupboards and chronic hunger this holiday season.
It costs $50,000 to run our winter break program for 1,000 children, and we need to reach these kids and more to help them get through the winter break.
Our winter break program provides food to children who need it during the two weeks they are home from school. Volunteers deliver the food directly to the family’s home.
We need your help in bringing hope to over 1,000 kids this winter break.
When that final bell rings, let’s make sure kids facing chronic hunger this winter won’t go hungry.
Food4Kids Waterloo Region is funded through donations and fundraising.
We are dedicated to the sustainable delivery of quality food programs to ensure children in our community can access food. We are 1/3 there with 1,000 kids. Help us feed these kids and reach more.
