With the closing of schools in March, the Children's Foundation, in partnership with local organizations, responded with a temporary emergency support initiative called Fresh Food for Kids that provided almost 100,000 nutritious meals to local children and youth in need in Dufferin, Wellington and Guelph.
This initiative has transitioned to Food & Friends at Home to start the new school year. Families with children and youth supported by the Children’s Foundation through the Food & Friends Program will be eligible to submit a request for a Food & Friends at Home kit starting September 4th. This kit will provide one snack for each day of a two week period similar to what would be provided through a Food & Friends student nutrition program.
