What is Live Free?

Every day, many children in our community live without the basic necessities that many of us take for granted. They lack warm homes, food to eat or a caring person to ensure they have what they need to grow and achieve a bright future. Often these children are sent to school without the proper nutrition to allow them to focus in their classes. Put simply, they are too hungry to learn. But this can change and you can make a difference. By raising funds for the Children's Foundation Food & Friends Program through the Live Free Campaign, you can help provide a healthy start to the day for any child in Wellington, Dufferin and Guelph who needs it.

Can you Live Free for those that live without?

You can contribute by taking the challenge to Live Free of something you take for granted every day. Maybe it’s a regular treat that you give yourself or it’s something that you love to do each day. Can you give that up for one day to show support for those who live without each and everyday? See if you can challenge your friends and family too. Get sponsors to provide support for you in your effort to Live Free. Or Live Free for the whole day and donate the money you would normally spend on yourself to help us raise funds to support children who are your neighbours.
Every dollar raised by the Live Free Campaign will be used to support children and students through the Children's Foundation Food & Friends' 103 student nutrition programs across Dufferin, Wellington and Guelph. 


Take the challenge. Help kids Live Free from hunger.
