Feed Tomorrow Week
During the week of October 15th – 19th 2018 we will kick-start the 14th annual feed tomorrow week. With the support of a declaration from Toronto City Council and hundreds of volunteers, feed tomorrow week will be the largest awareness campaign of its kind for student hunger and nutrition programs in 2018.
The week unites communities across Toronto in a common cause: to raise awareness about child hunger right here in our city and to raise money for the urgent needs of our children.
Staff, students, parents, grandparents, individuals, celebrity chefs, politicians, foundations, corporations and community members will come together during feed tomorrow week to help build a better tomorrow for Toronto’s vulnerable children.
Breakfast for Breakfast
Secondary school students will come together to support their peers across the TDSB by preparing and selling breakfasts in their schools. Students will gain volunteer hours and the proceeds will go towards supporting Student Nutrition Programs.
ACE Bakery 6-Foot Sandwich Snackdown Challenge
As part of their staff-led fundraising initiative, ACE Bakery staff will deliver 6-foot baguettes to all 18 beyond 3:30 sites and work with our Junior Chefs to prepare amazing creations, which can be enjoyed by all during snack time.
VIP Bus Tour
VIPs, passionate about food and child nutrition, will travel “student style” to see Student Nutrition Programs in action. Following the school experience, guests will arrive at a reception at St. Lawrence Market Kitchen, with food provided by St. Lawrence Market merchants.
Junior Chefs’ Cooking Challenge
Three teams of beyond 3:30 after-school program students will compete in a culinary competition to close out our feed tomorrow week. Students will have been preparing since September. The finalists will cook for a panel of judges, including chefs, “foodies” and media. Prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winners will be available. Good luck to all students!
Members of the Toronto District School Board’s (TDSB) Nutrition Services team will provide Ontario Apples in exchange for donations towards our Board’s nutrition programs. Team members will visit sites on the following dates:
Tuesday, October 16th 2018- 1 Civic Court
Wednesday, October 17th 2018- 2 Trethewey Drive
Thursday, October 18th 2018- 5050 Yonge Street
