The Grocery Foundation does much more than feed hungry children. It nourishes their potential and their wellbeing.
Our funding helps to ensure tens of thousands of school-aged children and youth have universal access to proper nutrition while at school. We do this through Foundation grants, industry donations and fundraising events, and through campaigns like Toonies for Tummies where the public and industry rally together. 100% of donations made through this campaign go directly to kids and youth in the communities where the funds are collected.
We also conduct a number of programs, including our School Voucher program, which helps make nutritious foods more affordable to programs.
Our industry and the network of student nutrition programs are focused on making a positive impact through fundraising, grants and donations and on engaging communities in this cause. In 2016, we launched our Agents of Change Program with teens from across the province and are actively working to continue to engage them in our efforts and vision, helping to feed a healthier generation and their futures.
