Food4Kids HaltonFood Security
Fundraising goal: $25,000
Food4Kids Halton provides healthy food packages for elementary-age kids with limited or no access to food each weekend. The food packages, assembled by volunteers, are delivered to schools each Friday to ensure children have proper nourishment over the weekend. School staff discreetly place the food bags into each child’s backpack to ensure anonymity and avoid stigma.
Our 6-week rotating menu features dietary options for Halal, Kosher, and allergies or food sensitivities. In 2022/2023, Food4Kids Halton served more than 1,000 children living with food insecurity, more than 300 from Oakville. We also support children and families throughout the summer months.
