Your Impact: How You’re Helping Children Thrive


Thank you for helping children thrive!

Thanks to you, over 3 million meals were served through school and community meal programs last year – this is 50% more than last year! And you didn't stop there. You gave confidence, hope, pride, and peace of mind to children and their families around the world. That’s why we're so pleased to share the newest thrive! newsletter with you.

Children like Nakato and Wasswa in Uganda, Grayce in Natoaganeg in New Brunswick, and Aliu in Ghana are eating well, thriving at school, and connecting with their heritage. That’s the power of your generosity! We hope you enjoy learning more about your impact.

    Listen to our podcast First Comes Food!

    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 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!
