At LuLu & Lavigne Home Studio we are very pleased to announce our association with Food4Kids as the focus of our charity work in 2015.
Food4Kids is a local charity that provides packages of healthy food for kids aged 5-14 years with limited or no access to food each weekend.
This amazing organization distributes 28,000 food packages annually, feeding 875 child participants in over 45 schools throughout Hamilton and Halton. Food4Kids is funded by community donations or one-time grants only and is run by one full-time director, a part time staff member and a host of wonderful volunteers.
Packages of healthy food are prepared by volunteers and delivered to schools each Friday to ensure the children connected with this program have nourishment over the weekend.
Lack of proper nourishment affects physical health, mental health and academic success. When children receive the nourishment they need, a whole new world opens up. They can concentrate better in class, have higher energy levels, improve test scores and attendance, and become more social.
