Food Sharing Project Background

The Food Sharing Project is an attempt on the part of interested groups and individuals to ensure that children do not go through their school day hungry.

The Food Sharing Project is an example of an ideal model, as a partnership among the School Boards, the Food Bank and many community groups, businesses, service clubs, and individuals working together to feed children in schools.

Approximately 4,200 students are fed daily in about 80 sites in the Limestone District School Board and the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board.

This is done through organized breakfast, lunch and/or hearty snack programs to meet the specific needs of their school communities.

Children are invited to eat and interact with others at school in a clean, relaxed, friendly, low-key program.
