What is Live Free?


Every day, many children in our community live without basic necessities that many of us take for granted. Often these children arrive at school without the proper nutrition they need to help them focus in class. Put simply, they are too hungry to learn.

From January to March each year, student nutrition programs funded through Children's Foundation Food & Friends take part in the Help Kids Live Free From Hunger Campaign, raising funds to provide nutritious food for the children that need it in Dufferin, Wellington and Guelph.


This year, 106 student nutrition programs took part to raise over $77,000 to help kids live free from hunger!
