1 in 6 Canadian kids don't know where their next meal is coming from
Food insecurity is a growing epidemic that affects that over 4 million Canadians, including 1.15 million kids. Going to bed with an empty tummy leads to improper sleep, which makes being ready to learn the next day difficult. And if children can't learn, their futures are uncertain.

Studies have proven that education is the foundation for a better future. We believe that all kids are deserving of equal opportunity to learn and grow. And they need nutritious food to do that.

FEEDING CANADIAN KIDS
is a federally incorporated non-profit organization that aims to relieve poverty by feeding children nutritious dinners. Proper nourishment is imperative for these children to achieve success in school, leading to a much healthier and fulfilling future.

Our Ask of You -  Help Feed Canadian Kids!

WE ALL NEED TO HELP!

What We Are Doing 

Our team is partnering with food suppliers, preparers and deliverers who have the capacity and goodwill to provide healthy meals to hungry children in time for dinner.

Recognition of Work Being Done Already
We recognize and applaud the many groups that are feeding these undernourished children breakfast and lunch. Our goal is to complement this work by filling the dinner gap with healthy, kid-friendly meals. This will ensure continued nourishment and a good night’s rest, thereby increasing their ability to learn, participate and succeed.

OUR ROLL-OUT PLAN


Phase 1: Pilot Project - Fall 2018
Provide nutritious meals to 3 - 5 after-school programs in disadvantaged Toronto neighbourhoods over four-weeks.

Phase 2: Evaluation - Fall 2018
Engage with all Pilot Project participants; food suppliers, preparers, distributors, after-school program staff, parents and of course, the kids. Their feedback will be essential for implementing operational & program improvements and for perfecting our strategy for program roll-out in Toronto, followed by Ontario and ultimately all across Canada.

Phase 3: Improve, Implement and Expand - Winter 2018/9 ongoing
Increase our scale by serving approximately 500 children in the most disadvantaged neighbourhoods in Toronto.

Phase 4:  Further Expansion (Provincial Level) - Spring 2019 ongoing
Serve nutritious dinner every weekday to approximately 3,000 children across Ontario.

Phase 5:  National Expansion Planning  - Summer 2019
Coordinate with all stakeholders to finalize the Canada-wide expansion plan.

Phase 6: Canada Wide Expansion I - September 2019 ongoing
Roll out Feeding Canadian Kids in the capital cities of each province focusing on the neighbourhoods most in need.  

Note: the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Yukon will take additional research and pilot project to determine logistics and other challenges.

Phase 7: Canada Wide Expansion II - September 2020 ongoing
Expand throughout each province in the neighbourhoods most under-served.

Phase 8: Servicing the Territories - September 2021
Coordinate with food partners, local social services, service clubs and after-school program in the territories to meet the needs of their hungry children.

Phase 9: The Remaining Underserved - Summer 2021
Formulate a strategy for all underserved areas without clubs or local social services. Coordinate with food partners, secure additional partners and create a sustainable plan to service the remaining children in need.
