GUELPH – Children who are not attending school might not be getting the meals that are normally provided through Food and Friends, a program of The Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington.
Early in the pandemic, the foundation launched an emergency food support program during COVID-19 called Fresh Food for Kids, and that program is growing.
“We are so excited to continue growing our program,” says Emma Rogers, CEO. “Recently we have had new supporters reach out to us wanting to help,” she noted.
The Foundation continues to receive requests for support daily.
With the on-going support of local organizations and donors, Fresh Food for Kids deliver to over 400 students per week in Dufferin, Wellington and Guelph, supporting more children than initially planned.
