Feed Tomorrow Week – October 15 – 19

Monday, October 15, 2018
Categories: Happenings @ TDSB

This week is Feed Tomorrow Week – the largest awareness campaign of its kind for student hunger and nutrition programs. One out of three children here in Toronto lives in poverty and over 817 school and community based Student Nutrition Programs (SNPs) provide over 205,000 nutritious meals every school day.

During feed tomorrow week, proclaimed by the City of Toronto, the Toronto Foundation for Student Success, an independent registered charity that provides support to the students at schools across Toronto, will host events dedicated to feeding Toronto’s hungry students and nourishing hungry minds.

Founded in 1998, the Toronto Foundation for Student Success (TFSS) is a registered charity. The TFSS is an independent, registered charitable organization dedicated to supporting Toronto District School Board (TDSB) children and helping remove barriers to their education.
