Help us reduce expenses by donating in-kind services such as:
April 30, 2019 - A welcome food donation from LunchBoxOrders.com
This Guelph-based is celebrating five successful years in business. They kindly included Food4Kids Guelph in their anniversary celebrations by donating foods to us that we can add to our weekend bags. We are truly appreciative! LunchBoxOrders.com has now spread its support to some 300 schools in Ontario with their very interesting social-entrepreneur model ... doing business while doing good. They have three simple goals: make it easy for parents, healthy for kids and beneficial for schools.
Volunteer groups from 2nd Chance Employment Counselling in Guelph regularly help us pack our weekend food bags, and they especially delighted us on April 25, 2019 by donating several bags of food to our program. We are SO grateful for this wonderful community collaboration!
