In early 2017 several Rotarians were shocked to learn that hundreds of children in the Guelph area arrive at school hungry on Monday mornings.
The four Guelph Rotary clubs came together to find a solution. We decided to model our efforts on the successful Food4Kids programs operating in Hamilton and Waterloo.
With incredible support from Kelly-Sue Oberle of Food4Kids Waterloo Wellington, we ran a successful pilot program as a satellite of Food4Kids WW and are now feeding more than 170 kids every school weekend.
We have now received the go ahead from Food4Kids Ontario to become independent. Watch this space for updates!
