Healthy Food for Kids

A fundraising initiative that aims to raise awareness about food insecurity and secure funds to provide food assistance to children and families in our community. Funds raised help provide food for important programs and outreach to those in need.

Le Programme d’aliments sains pour enfants est notre initiative locale de financement destinée à sensibiliser la population et à recueillir des fonds pour aider les enfants et les familles dans le besoin.

Why Donate?

  • To ensure children in our community have access to healthy food
  • Because dollars raised go directly towards feeding our most vulnerable
  • Because working together we can build a community where no child goes hungry
  • To help us make a difference in the lives of children and their families

In 2005, the first edition of the Calendar of Life was introduced to Sudbury and area as a means to raise awareness and funds to support our Infant Food Cupboard program. This year marks the 19th edition, and we are raising funds for our Healthy Food for Kids Initiative.

The requested donation amount is $780.00. The contribution is not simply a cheque. Every penny is used right here in our community. From infant formula and milk to the fresh fruits and vegetables, these nutritious foods give children the start they need to develop physically and mentally. They need these essential nutrients now if they are to someday take responsibility and build a secure and rewarding life for themselves.

We need your help. Past contributions have changed lives, and perhaps even saved some. Please help us make a difference in the lives of children.

The Calendar of Life is an opportunity for us to recognize and thank our sponsors and supporters. We are proud to distribute 3000 copies throughout the District of Sudbury/Manitoulin. It’s also a great tool for anyone interested in knowing a bit more about our Child Care Centres and Family Resource Programs.
