The ‘No Hungry Children’ Program

About the ‘No Hungry Children’ Program

This program is a collaborative effort between The Central Okanagan Food Bank, Superstore and the Fund and its donors.  We work closely with Food Bank Executive Director Lenetta Parry and Superstore Manager Troy Tchir to ensure that 100% of your donation is used to purchase appropriate foods for the Food Bank’s ‘TINY BUNDLES’, ‘ VITALITY’ and ‘KIDS SNACK PACK’ programs.  Please see a description of these programs below.

THE FOODBANK’S ‘NO HUNGRY CHILDREN’ PROGRAMS

Tiny Bundles

This program is specially designed to meet the nutritional needs of pregnant mothers and families with children under the age of one. Participants are eligible for a weekly hamper containing milk, eggs, fresh fruits, vegetables and baby basics. Mothers also receive a one-time layette, containing new baby items, when the baby is born. Additionally, public health nurses are available at the Food Bank twice per month to answer any questions new moms may have.

Vitality Program

This program is for families with children age 15 years and younger. This program ensures that participants receive adequate nutrition as outlined in Canada’s Food Guide, including milk, eggs, meat and fresh produce.

Kids Snack Pack Program

This program provides children from ages one to 12 years with a one week supply of ready-to eat, healthy, nutritious (age appropriate) snacks to take to pre-school, day care or school. These snack packs include (but are not limited to) fresh fruit, cello-packaged fresh produce, yogurt, cheese, 100% fruit juice boxes and healthy granola bars.
