Food for Thought
There are over 5,900 children in the Central Okanagan that live in a food insecure home and are at risk of going to school hungry. Since 2009, Food for Thought’s aim has been to eliminate hunger, one child at a time, through various programs.
Now more than ever, we need to invest in our children's physical and emotional well-being. This is a fundamental opportunity to create a future full of healthy, resilient, and succeeding adults.
We know that a hungry child has a higher chance of acting out and are less likely to achieve their personal potential. We have seen happy, productive classrooms with reduced behavioral problems, increased academic performance, and a stronger sense of community.
