The Food Sharing Project is an attempt on the part of interested groups and individuals to ensure that children do not go through their school day hungry.


The Food Sharing Project is an example of an ideal model, as a partnership among the School Boards, the Food Bank and many community groups, businesses, service clubs, and individuals working together to feed children in schools.


Last year, 13,000 students were fed by our programs, which are located in 95 schools in the Limestone District School Board and the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board. Thousands of students are fed daily.


This is done through organized breakfast, lunch and/or hearty snack programs to meet the specific needs of their school communities.


Children are invited to eat and interact with others at school in a clean, relaxed, friendly, low- key program.


Should children be fed at school? Schools are involved in encouraging the social, emotional, academic and physical growth of children. This food sharing effort addresses an area of physical need that exists for many families for a variety of reasons. The program does not pretend to solve the problems that lead to hungry and malnourished children. Rather, it attempts to provide support for children who are victims of circumstances beyond their control. Efforts are made to avoid stigma and to keep participation voluntary and non-threatening.
