For 3 year, The Ontario Association of Food Banks (OAFB) in partnership with The Grocery Foundation ran the Rural Kids Grant Program. This initativew is a granting program exclusively available to rural food banks and the children they serve. The Grocery Foundation committed $100,000 each year, from 2012-2014 to support this initiative, allowing the OAFB to provide additional support to food banks and their children's programs in rural communities. All 82 of the OAFB's direct food bank members in rural communities - communities with a population of less than 50,000 - were eligible to apply to the grant and can apply for $1,000 to $5,000 annually.
We cannot thank The Grocery Foundation enough for their support of the Rural Kids Grant Program. Across Ontario, they have impacted and made a difference in the lives of over 18,000 children every single month. What an incredible impact!
The Grocery Foundation is an Ontario-based not-for-profit, representing leaders from Canada's grocery industry, and committed to providing funding to organizations across the province that meet a number of child health and wellness needs including providing nutritious breakfasts and snacks for school-aged students.
