In 2008 more than 9,000 hungry children came to the Kelowna Food Bank for help. Their need is greater than our supply. Over 40% of Food Bank recipients are children, and the impact of hunger and lack of nutrition in children is severe:
The World Health Organization states that nutrition is the foundation for health and development. Healthy children learn better, are stronger, more productive, and have a better chance of breaking cycles of poverty and realizing their full potential.
There should be no hungry children in Kelowna. For a monthly commitment of just $35 you can help us eliminate child hunger in Kelowna.
