Rural Kids Program

Supported by The Monsanto Fund, the Rural Kids Program provides rural food banks in Ontario with funding to support the children they serve.

About the Program

Many food banks use this funding to grow existing programs, such as a local breakfast club or meal program, or to create new programs for children in the community, like a drop-in centre or after-school program. All programs provide fresh, healthy food choices in a warm and welcoming environment – just for kids!

To date, the OAFB Rural Kids Grant program has provided over $350,000 to food banks in rural communities across the province, benefiting as many as 18,000 kids every month throughout the school year.
