Feed Tomorrow Week
During the week of Oct. 21 to 25, 2019, the Toronto Foundation for Student Success will celebrate our 15th annual Feed Tomorrow Week. With the support of a declaration from Toronto City Council and hundreds of volunteers. This week unites communities across Toronto in a common cause: to raise awareness about child hunger and the need for student nutrition right here in our city.
Staff, students, parents, grandparents, individuals, celebrity chefs, politicians, foundations, corporations, and community members come together during Feed Tomorrow Week to help build a better tomorrow for Toronto’s vulnerable children.
Student Nutrition Programs in Toronto provide children and youth with over 205,000 nutritious meals every school day. When we’re talking about student nutrition, it’s simple: if you’re hungry, it’s hard to focus, and if you can’t focus, you can’t learn. To level the playing field for our most vulnerable students, we need to ensure that they are well-nourished so that they face one less barrier to graduating from school.
The support of our partners is needed now more than ever. To see how you can get involved, please contact us.
Breakfast for Breakfast
Secondary school students come together to support their peers across the TDSB by preparing and selling breakfasts in their schools. Students gain volunteer hours and proceeds go towards supporting Student Nutrition Programs in our city.
ACE Bakery Six-Foot Sandwich Snackdown Challenge
As part of their staff-led fundraising initiative, ACE Bakery staff deliver six-foot baguettes to all 18 beyond 3:30 sites. Our Junior Chefs prepare amazing sandwiches, which are enjoyed by all during snack time.
VIP Bus Tour
VIP guests, passionate about food and child nutrition, travel “student-style” to see Student Nutrition Programs in action. Following the school visits, guests will arrive at a reception at the St. Lawrence Market Kitchen and enjoy food provided by St. Lawrence Market merchants.
Junior Chefs’ Cooking Challenge
Three teams of beyond 3:30 after-school program students compete in a culinary competition to close out Feed Tomorrow Week. Students will begin preparing in September. The finalists cook for a panel of judges, including chefs, “foodies,” and media. Prizes are given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
Members of the Toronto District School Board’s (TDSB) Nutrition Services Team provide Ontario Apples in return for donations towards student nutrition.
