Vancouver Firefighters believe that no child should go hungry in a Vancouver School. With this in mind, VFC partners with the Vancouver School Board (VSB) to provide nutritional support to kids and families who need our help.
Snacks for Kids distributes food discreetly through an accessible distribution system that allows the child to participate anonymously without fear of humiliation or being judged by peers.
VFC strives to provide the most nutrition for a student through a cost effective approach. The ultimate goal is to nourish students for learning. The program focuses on providing healthy nutrient-dense foods that fuel kids for learning.
The Snacks for Kids Program is funded by Vancouver Firefighter payroll donations and by fundraising events. Food support goes only to those children who are not having their nutritional needs met at home or by other support services.
Your contribution helps extend the reach of our program. We are a volunteer organization and every dollar donated goes back into our community.
While we are proud of this accomplishment, this is an unfortunate milestone that speaks to the problem of child poverty in our city. Please consider joining our fight against child hunger in our schools.
