Island Food Security Grants

The United Way of PEI has announced funding for 3 Island Food Security Grants made possible thanks to the success of the 2018 PEI Burger Love Campaign’s “Give Back Burger” initiative.

Participating restaurants donated $1 for each Give Back Burger sold in April to the United Way of PEI’s Food Security Grant program, which supports programs that increase access to local and affordable food for Islanders.

Food Nation Kid Food Nation 

Kid Food Nation is a Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada program that teaches about food preparation, nutrition, and other skills. The program is facilitated by Red Seal Chef Katie Dawson who gets together each week with our 10+ group to prepare a new dish and sit down together to eat. From start to finish Kid Food Nation is equipping kids with important skills that will stick with them for life.

Food Nation Nutritional Breakfast Program

The Nutritional Breakfast Program operates Monday-Friday from 6:30am - 8:30am year-round, providing children with a healthy, hearty breakfast, physical activity, time with friends, and homework support. Members also receive transportation to the club and school, along with healthy food for their lunches if needed.

Behind every changed life is someone like you who made it happen.
