who We Are

Our Story

Where it all began

In 2019, an article in a local newspaper enlightened two of our founders about the severity and scale of our community’s youth food crisis. After learning that more than 150K children live below the poverty line in BC and understanding what that meant for their bodies, minds, and spirits, we knew we had to take action.

Since that first article-driven “aha” moment, we’ve formed a registered charity based in White Rock, BC, Canada, where our knowledge about BC’s food gaps has grown in bushels and heaps. For instance, we now know that Canada is the only G7 country that does not have a school food program in place. And we’re also aware that even hungry kids can feel hesitant to take advantage of charity-focused food initiatives due to embarrassment and the lack of anonymity.

That’s why we’ve set out to change the story by cooking up carefully developed and mindfully executed food programs that connect bellies in need with the nourishment they deserve.
