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 neighborhoods on a daily basis operating 7 days /week this past year. The pandemic has hit low-income families and our team is working hard to supply healthy nutritious meals and food supports for communities in need. We are currently serving over 3500 meals weekly.
Our clients include families who have suffered job losses, newcomers and refugees, isolated seniors and others struggling to make ends meet.
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.
To this end, we now operate a Free Food Pantry program that serves over 40 families each week, a 5n2 Garden Project engaging community members, and an EdU program enabling seniors to navigate technology.
The closure of schools has led to the shutdown of the Toronto district’s student nutrition program, placing 2 million children at the risk of experiencing hunger on a daily basis. We are supporting communities working with youth engagement, supplying meals and food supports to vulnerable children.
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.
