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, serving more than 900 children living with food insecurity. Of those 900 children, 294 live in Oakville.
The food packages, assembled by volunteers, are delivered to schools every 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. We also support children and families throughout the summer months.
