Help Kids Live Free from Hunger in Wellington County

Help Kids Live Free from Hunger in Wellington County

Every day, thousands of students in our region go to school hungry.  Studies have shown that a lack of healthy food leads to distraction, making it difficult for students to focus in school. This negatively impacts their grades, and their potential for success. The Children's Foundation of Guelph and Wellington's Food and Friends Program provides funding and support to 107 student nutrition programs in the local area, serving over 15,000 students. With your help, healthy food can be provided to these students. A TWO-DOLLAR donation will provide a nutritious breakfast for one hungry student. Give a little, change a lot!
