Coming to school hungry isn't right.
And when the only reason it's happening is because your family has to choose between paying the rent or buying groceries, you feel ashamed to ask for help.
Lifeline has been making a difference for hungry kids since 2010.
Hungry kids at Lifeline Schools have access to a backpack full of food they can prepare themselves, for them and their siblings as often as once-a-week, in addition to emergency lunch kits and "no-questions-asked" snacks.
Our partnership with Loaves & Fishes (our community Food Bank in Nanaimo) and the relationship of trust that Lifeline Staff have with students makes this incredible program possible.
