What is Food & Friends at Home?
An evolution of our Fresh Food for Kids initiative, Food & Friends at Home will be supporting children and youth through their transition back to school. Our Fresh Food for Kids initiative worked to continue to support the needs of children and youth who rely on our Food & Friends student nutrition for food support. While most students will be returning to school, many programs, such as our Food & Friends student nutrition programs, are not able to run normally. This leaves many students who rely on these programs without the proper nutrition needed for a full day of learning.
The Children's Foundation will continue to support these children and youth by delivering snack kits to families homes, providing one snack for each day of a two week period. These snacks willl be similar to what would be provided through a Food & Friends student nutrition program. Families with children and youth supported by our Food & Friends Program will be eligible to register for a Food & Friends at Home kit as of Friday, September 4th, 2020.
