the idea girl says
Jan 14, 2015 during our meeting at the FSNFE Food Security Network Fort Erie, Anne from the Salvation Army mentioned that she’s working on a new lunch program for the kids in our area.
It’s called the Rural Kids Grant Program which can feed 1200 kids with a $3000 Grant. Problem is, it will only feed them for so many months and then we are on our own…
So I’m calling for donations (NO FRILLS) President’s Choice Gift Cards to be used to buy foods for the kids at the schools.
In our fight against Poverty, this is one of many programs that we will be working on as a team to get going in our area.
When I did a Google Search I found that many schools already have this program in place. (Hamilton does)
And we’d like to bring it here to Fort Erie, Ridgeway, and Crystal Beach.
As far as I know it’s going to be for the public schools. Not sure what age groups it takes care of.
it’s still in discussion and Anne is still working on the planning stages.
They will probably need volunteers too to put these lunch kits together.
They will need lunch bags donated as well. ( I’ve already blogged what needs to be donated monthly to get this program to work successfully in our area).
Contact Anne at the Salvation Army if you want to drop off donations for this “Rural Kids Grant Program” idea. (I’m not sure if we’ll be giving it a NAME in the future so forgive me. I’m just excited to see we are working hard to wipe out poverty here in the Niagara Region (as others are doing in Canada too!)
