Food4Kids Brant Haldimand was conceived in December 2016 replicating the successful program model developed by Food4Kids Hamilton. The Hamilton branch is now in its 5th year of operation and serves over 1,335 kids every weekend throughout Hamilton and Halton regions.
There is a current gap where children in Brant-Haldimand face weekends and summers with limited or no access to food. Food4Kids Brant Hadimand founding Board of Directors was formed, and facilitating a pilot project in partnership with school boards to initially meet the needs of children in schools within Brant Region.
The program is based on these 3 distinct areas:
Food provided in food packages would be healthy.
Each child in the home would receive their own food package, to ensure nourishment of all children in the home.
The program model would be developed to ensure that the food distributed to participants would be non-stigmatizing.
Our focus is to increase the numbers of children we impact within Waterloo Region in year 1 and then expand to meet the needs of Guelph/Wellington County.
