"He arrived each day at school with one piece of white bread... that was moldy."
We wish we could say this was an isolated occurrence,
but there are 2,500 kids in Mississauga with limited or
no access to food each weekend.
Food4Kids provides packages of healthy food for kids aged 4-13 years with limited or no access to food each weekend.
The food packages are assembled by volunteers and delivered to schools each Friday to ensure children have nourishment over the weekend. There are 2,500 children in Mississauga struggling through each weekend without food.
It’s hard to believe children in our very own community go hungry, but it's a reality faced by children each and every day. It’s not that parents do not want to feed their kids….they can’t. The worsening economy, job loss, working poor, illness, mental health, marriage breakdown or those fleeing their home country to seek safe refuge in Canada, are some of the reasons a parent will turn to Food4Kids for support.
Food4Kids is funded through donations or one-time grants. While hunger exists around the world, it is our hope to address hunger in our home community.

TESTIMONIALS... SAY IT ALL
"We were homeless. I called Food4Kids. They helped us immediately with food."
I never thought our family would depend on others for food
"I never thought our family would depend on others for food. With a medical problem, I had no choice but to quit work. As a single parent raising 2 great kids, there is barely enough money for rent, little money for food and absolutely no money for extras. When the school asked if I would like to involve my kids in the Food4Kids program, all I could do was cry. Knowing my children have food brings comfort. The fresh fruits, soups and healthy snacks are appreciated. Thank you for this service. The volunteers at Food4Kids are angels."
