About Us

Food4Kids Brant-Haldimand was created in 2017 after several other communities of Food4Kids in Ontario were successful in serving children experiencing food insecurity. Brant-Haldimand was identified as a community in need, and began as a pilot project involving 50 children. Last year, the program grew to serve 210 children and is eager to continue growing. 

 

Food4Kids Brant-Haldimand is committed to serving children experiencing food insecurity in Brant region 52 weeks a year to fill in gaps where students are not able to benefit from food resources at school, such as on weekends and during the summer. To ensure children are fed without encouraging stigmatization, students are provided with nutritious food items in discreet packaging.

We work with community partners to ensure children in our community have access to healthy food 52 weeks a year.

Local food banks offer a supply of food to families in need. There is a sector of children unable to access these resources due to barriers such as transportation, working hours, illness and a host of other barriers preventing access.

Our direct, non-stigmatizing and impactful program model ensures food gets to children most in need.

Food4Kids is based on these 4 distinct areas:

Each child in the home would receive their own food package, to ensure nourishment of every child in the home.

Food would be provided to the community’s most impoverished children, who would otherwise be facing the weekend or summer months without food.

The food provided to children would be healthy.

Food would be distributed to participants in a non-stigmatizing approach.
