Kelowna's Food for Thought to Pitch at ChangeUP3
Food for Thought is a HOPE program located in Kelowna, BC. There are over 4,500 children in the central Okanagan who go to school hungry due to living in a food insecure home, often due to poverty. Without proper nutrition, students often experience low energy, are unable to concentrate, and often act out as a result.
Food for Thought works to combat this issue by providing a free nutritious breakfast to over 1500 school-aged children a day across 30 schools located throughout Kelowna and the surrounding area.
We’re excited to announce that Food for Thought was recently selected to pitch as a finalist at the ChangeUP3 event presented by the Okanagan Changemakers, on November 2nd!
“This year’s ChangeUP, Okanagan Changemakers’ third pitch competition, will feature six finalists who will present their ideas for tackling some of our community’s most difficult challenges. Through live voting, the audience selects the best social impact initiative in each category with cash and inkind services on the line.” – okanaganchangemakers.com
At the event, Food for Thought, along with other local entrepreneurs, will be pitching innovative solutions to social and environmental challenge. After which the audience will then vote to select which program they think will have the best impact.
We invite everyone who is able and interested to attend the event and lend your support to this amazing HOPE program.
