Thank you for helping children thrive!

Thanks to you, over 2 million meals were served through school and community meal programs last year – this is 3x more than the year before! There are incredible stories of hope behind this big number, and that’s why we're so pleased to share the newest thrive! newsletter with you.

Children like Zaina in Uganda, Malaika in Lubicon Lake Band, Alberta and Mariam in Ghana are eating well, thriving at school, active in sports and connecting with their heritage. That’s the power of your support! I hope you enjoy learning more about your impact.

    Zoe holds some leafy greens in a garden. The text says First Comes Food Premiere Episode What's a food forest?First Comes Food is a brand-new podcast by Canadian Feed The Children that explores the surprising ways communities are feeding children and families in the face of a global food crisis.

    Join us on our journey through Indigenous food forests in Saskatchewan, arming communities in African countries and early childhood community programs in Bolivia and meet the people who are growing food security for everyone.

    In our premiere episode, What's a Food Forest?,you’ll hear about a remarkable partnership that is helping Indigenous families grow their own food. Food Forests are a unique way communities grow their own nutritious food locally, and feed families for generations. We’ll take you to one such food forest in central Saskatchewan and meet the people behind it.

    Your partnership has been key to community efforts to feed families during the global food crisis. Listen to learn more about your impact!
