A bit about Food4Kids
It was assessed 1,500 children in Hamilton and 400 children in Halton were going without food each and every weekend. A program model was developed with a focus on 3 distinct areas:

1)Food provided to children at-risk would be healthy

2)Each child in the home would receive their own food package, to ensure nourishment of all children in the home

3) The program model would ensure a non-stigmatizing process of food distribution to participants

Today, 1335 healthy food packages are distributed in 89 schools throughout Hamilton and Halton.
