What is the Live Free campaign?
Every day, many children and youth in our community live without basic necessities that many of us take for granted. Often, they arrive at school without the proper nutrition they need to help them focus in class. Put simply, they are too hungry to learn.
Our Help Kids Live Free From Hunger campaign, aims to raise funds to support our Food & Friends student nutrition programs, offering thousands of local children and youth access to nutritious food while at school.
Supporting Live Free
The Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington invites you to be an advocate for children and youth in our community through our Help Kids Live Free From Hunger campaign in support of the Food & Friends Program. As we continue to fight hunger, our goal is to continue to raise awareness and funds to support those in need in our community.
In a time of increasing grocery costs, high inflation, and stressed family budgets, we are seeing a growing need for families to access Food & Friends programs. A healthy Food & Friends meal can cost an average of $2.50. Many children and youth in our community live without the basic necessities that many of us take for granted. For some students, the food from our Food & Friends supported programs will be their only meal of the day.
By raising funds for the Food & Friends Program through the Live Free campaign, you can have a remarkable impact on the lives of children and youth in our community by helping provide a healthy start to the day for kids in our community who need it. 100% of the funds raised will help local kids Live Free From Hunger.
