Will There Be Food At My School This Year?

Will there be Food at my School this year?

Your support is vital to these children!

As we head into another Fall season it is often an exciting time for children across Canada, as they head back to school. For many of our children or grandchildren it means new clothes, backpacks and school supplies.

But for struggling families and children in countries where Speroway has programs like Haiti, Kenya, Nicaragua, Malawi and Dominican Republic - back to school means a chance to learn but it also brings hope of a regular lunch when the school has a feeding program.

Worldwide food supply shortages and significant price increases are causing food insecurity and increasing the risk of famine in many parts of the world. Speroway has been stretching our resources as much as possible but it has been a huge strain to maintain these vital feeding programs.

These girls in Malawi have their spoons ready for lunch and the children in Haiti (shown at the top of this letter) are lined up heading to the lunchroom, but the question on the children’s minds is, “will there be lunch for me”?

This Fall we are once again asking for your help to support these school feeding programs and with our food partners your gift will be multiplied 3x. This means …

With your help, we can continue feeding programs that help nourish children and keep them in school. Poor nutrition causes nearly half of the deaths in children worldwide. While nutritious meals are very important in impacting the lives of children, your donations go beyond just the meal

Your gift will be multiplied by 3x!

Health & Nutrition

Malnourished children are missing key nutrients in their diets. Food is essential to fuel the children’s bodies and brains in order to grow and learn.

Education

Nutritious meals give children the energy they need to focus and learn, and these programs motivate parents to keep their children in school.

During this past year most of our programs have seen fewer donations coming in, meaning some children are now unable to have a meal at school as we are not able to provide an essential feeding program. All of the children in these pictures are hoping there is a lunch this year at their school and there are thousands more like them. By investing in school feeding programs you are not only providing nutrition and education for children but also a future. Please consider helping us to provide thousands of meals to children like the ones in these pictures. This Fall we are once again asking for your help to support these school feeding programs and with our food partners your gift will be tripled.
