$100 buys program materials for one garden unit for a year.

Throughout the school year, and even through winter, students grow plants from seed, and learn about plant life-cycles, nutrition, and entrepreneurship. Students even get to to eat the food they grow!

$250 provides training for 25 volunteers.

Every volunteer has something special to offer. Research shows that students benefit from the attention of a caring adult.

$50 allows 1 volunteer to support up to 10 students weekly.

Approximately 15% of students in every Ottawa classroom have learning challenges, and may be at risk of falling behind their peers. Volunteers have a direct impact in Ottawa classrooms.

By starting the day with a healthy meal, we’re giving our children and youth the tools they need to achieve their dreams.
