We have all seen an increase in the price of food at grocery stores in recent months. Doing more with less has become something many families have had to do to adjust to the rising cost of food in this new economic climate.
Our Kids Eat Smart Clubs are no different. During this school year, we have seen a significant increase in the cost of food and supplies for our Kids Eat Smart Clubs. Our KES Club volunteers are very cognizant of the need to ensure the best quality of food for our children at the best possible prices.
It is important to increase awareness and fundraising efforts to ensure we sustain our Kids Eat Smart Clubs. This new initiative, for Wednesday, March 16, 2016, is a food drive focusing on Breakfast items to fill our Kids Eat Smart Club cupboards.
It is important, that your school participate to help collect food.
We are asking businesses, community organizations and individuals to collect food for your KES Club and drop it off to your local school on March 16th. For people who wish to contribute but cannot make it to your school, they can DONATE online at http://www.kidseatsmart.ca/donate. Online donations can be designated directly to your school.
Please reach out to your local KES Regional Coordinator (information listed below) with any questions or if you require assistance, please call us (877) 722.1996 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for everything you do, every school day.
Celina Stoyles, Executive Director
