Event type: All Ages
For many children, hunger is not just an occasionally missed meal - it is a way of life. Children who live with chronic hunger develop physically and socially at a slower pace than their peers, experience higher levels of anxiety, hyperactivity, irritability, and social exclusion. When children receive the nourishment they need, a whole new world opens to them.
Food4Kids Waterloo Region recognized a significant gap in childhood food security in that kids left school on Friday to arrive home to little, or no food. It became our mission to ensure severely food insecure children have enough food to sustain them over the weekend. In January 2017 we began with 19 children and are now feeding over 511 kids every weekend and have piloted Winter, Spring and Summer Break programs where we feed extremely food insecure children every day. The cost to feed a child is $1,000 per year.
The Outlandos and The Blooz Brothers recognize the foundational benefits of feeding children the nutritious food they require to be healthy in all ways. We will be supporting the future of kids in our communities by:
FIGHTING HUNGER FEEDING HOPE BUILDING FUTURES
With Sincerest regards, gratitude, and looking forward to a brighter and healthier future for our kids, We Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
