This campaign will benefit VFCS’s Snack Program and Community First Foundation’s (CFF) Backpack Buddies program. VFCS believes that no child should go hungry at school. With this in mind, the VFCS is partnering with the Vancouver School Board to develop a school snack program. These snacks will go to those children who are not having their nutritional needs met at home or by other support services. The snacks are distributed confidentially through an accessible distribution system that allows the recipient to participate anonymously without the fear of embarrassment or being judged by peers.
