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.

You can help make a difference: donate to this year's Live Free Campaign starting January 1.


Can you Live Free for those that live without?


Take the challenge to live free of something you take for granted every day. Maybe it’s a simple cup of coffee or a special daily treat. Can you "live free" for one day to show support for those who live without? Challenge your friends and family or ask sponsors for support. When you live free of something, donate the money you would normally spend to help raise funds for local children who live without.

Every dollar raised by the Live Free Campaign is used to support children and students through the Children's Foundation Food & Friends' 106 student nutrition programs across Dufferin, Wellington and Guelph.
