When children and families have access to nutritious food, they can learn, work and thrive

Since the very beginning, access to food has been the number one priority for Food For The Poor Canada. Everyone should have access to food. We know that a well-fed child can concentrate better in school. In the same way, an adult who isn’t hungry is more likely to keep their job. We rely on kind donors like you to provide life-saving food for malnourished children and families in need of support.

5 Million Meals, 1 Child at a Time

For children and families living in poverty this means that children are going to bed hungry. Families must choose between buying food and paying other bills. Parents choose between eating dinner or giving their portion to their children.

You can help feed a child today.
