Donate In-Kind


We normally appreciate donations of shelf stable food, but under the current circumstances cannot accept or deliver these items. The best way to help is to donate money via CanadaHelps; this enables us to purchase grocery cards in bulk and mail them out to the families we serve.


Your in-kind donations also help us fill the weekend food gap


We appreciate food donations and are happy to accept the following items in individual sized cans or boxes:


  • Fruit Cups: Applesauce, Mandarin orange or Pears
    (packed in juice… not syrup)

  • Cereal Bars: All Bran or Granola (peanut free)

  • Soups (dry packaged), Canned Tuna, Chicken, Turkey or Ham flakes, Beans in Tomato Sauce. When shopping for cans, please keep the weight of them in mind. All products are placed in children's backpacks

  • Snacks: Goldfish crackers (45 g snack size please)

  • Raisins  (snack boxes)

  • Hummus, Chicken or Tuna snacks with cracker

  • Oatmeal (single serving packets)

  • "School Safe" brand snacks

  • Motts Fruitsations

We try to provide the same food to each child; therefore please limit your donations to items from the above list. 



Help us reduce expenses by donating in-kind services such as:

  • Printing

  • Media

  • Database support

A welcome food donation from


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! 

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!
