Rural Kids Grant Program

“Now in its second year, the Rural Kids Grant Program, an initiative of the Grocery Foundation and the Ontario Association of Food Banks, provides food banks in rural Ontario with an opportunity to increase the amount of fresh, healthy food available for children in their community.”   Ontario Association of Food Banks

The Pantry is very pleased to have received a grant in 2014 which we have used to set up a Brown Bag Program to supplement children’s lunches with nutritious food items.  Families with children who visit the Pantry will receive a brown bag for each child, containing items such as cheese, fruit cups, granola bars, and chocolate milk.
