Save A Child From Hunger

It only takes $5 a meal, to save a child from hunger. We need your support!

At 5n2, we have been busy serving the more vulnerable in our neighbourhoods on a daily basis operating 7 days /week this past year. The pandemic hit low-income families including those who have suffered job losses, newcomers and refugees, and others struggling to make ends meet. There were multiple school closures leading to the removed access of Toronto district’s student nutrition program which placed 2 million children at the risk of experiencing hunger on a daily basis. We supported communities working with youth engagement, supplying meals and food supports to vulnerable children.

This past year we have revised our mission and vision. Our mission is to fight food insecurity and to this purpose our vision is to enable equitable access to food supports for marginalized communities.

Our team continues to work hard to supply healthy nutritious meals and food supports for communities in need. We are currently serving over 3500 meals weekly. To this end, we now operate a Free Food Pantry program that serves over 40 families each week and a 5n2 Garden Project engaging community members.

Our challenge this year remains largely with sustaining our services even as the needs are increasing exponentially. Through this campaign, we hope to raise awareness around our resource needs. Your support with circulating the campaign across your network to help us get donations would be extremely helpful.
