About Us OLD

Feeding Canadian Kids is the only Canadian federal registered charity working to fill the dinner-gap, providing healthy meals to hungry children for a good night’s sleep, nourished body and brighter future! Our team is made up of a variety of devoted professionals who offer their experience, passion and network to support our needs.

Our original model was straighforward, partnering with restaurants, caterers, delivery services and community volunteers to make nutritious meals and deliver them to food-insecure children at local after-school programs. Together we’ve provided over 30,000 healthy dinners to hungry children in underserved neighbourhoods across the GTA.

The economic, safety and social challenges surrounding COVID-19 propelled us to reinvent our original model and develop our Families Feeding Families initiative. The way it works is we pair a Host Family with a Guest Family, and ask that they prepare and deliver a healthy meal to their home, at a minimum of once per week.

Families Feeding Families is a simple and sustainable recipe to move our mission forward, and is a complement to our existing after school dinner program.
