Providing
healthy food
to students

“Since 1985, The Food Sharing Project has been providing nutritious food to schools across Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox & Addington. Educators, and research, tell us that students who have access to healthy food can focus better on their academic tasks, are more engaged in their learning, and have more positive social interactions. Student nutrition programs at schools can take many forms but they all offer healthy food that is accessible to any student who needs nutrition, in a stigmafree environment, supported by caring adults.” 

Our Impact

We provide food to 88 schools in 4 school boards, across Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox & Addington

Our volunteers pack over $18,000 of food every week, over half a million dollars of food over the course of the school year

Our drivers deliver food directly to the schools’ front doors,  over 600kms per week

Over 7,500 meals or snacks per week are provided by schools with the food we provide

Over the course of a school year, 16,000 students – half of all enrolled in the region – access their school’s nutrition program, either regularly or on occasion

Over 1000 volunteer hours are accrued each week to deliver nutrition programs in schools
