What is Food & Friends at Home?
The Children’s Foundation is working towards continuing our support of the most vulnerable in our community despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are especially concerned about the children and youth who rely on our Food & Friends student nutrition programs.
In partnership with local organizations, we will continue the Food & Friends at Home initiative which will operate from October 4th until the end of this year (December 2021).
Parent(s) or Guardian(s) with children and youth supported by the Children’s Foundation through the Food & Friends Program Sites are eligible to submit a request for a Food & Friends at Home kit. This kit will provide one meal per child/youth, for each day of a two-week period similar to what would be provided through a Food & Friends student nutrition program.

How it works
Families in need of food support can register for a Food & Friends at Home kit. (Only one registration is required per family.)
To accept your registration, families must give consent to share the information with our food support partners, packing and driving volunteers.
Deliveries will be made every two weeks starting October 4, 2021.
Applicants will receive email notifications of delivery details for the kits.
The Food & Friends at Home kits follow nutritional guidelines.
Deliveries will be made to the doorsteps of families in Dufferin, Wellington and Guelph.
For the safety of families and the community, volunteers delivering the kits will not enter homes.
Our goal is to provide up to 3,000 Food & Friends at Home kits every two weeks for school-aged children and youth so that we can continue bringing healthy food to hungry minds.
Please note: the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and the community is our top priority. We are following recommended safety protocols and taking extra precautions when packaging and delivering Food & Friends at Home kits.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
