The Food Sharing Project is a registered Canadian charity, incorporated in 1986 as a non-profit organization. The organization is governed by a volunteer board of directors and currently employs three full-time staff members, supported by many volunteers. Our mission is to provide nourishment for students to improve their readiness to learn.
As a community partner of the Ontario Student Nutrition Program, we provide nutritious food to all publically-funded schools across Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox and Addington, at no charge. The food is delivered right to the doors of each school every week of the school year. Schools use this food to operate a Student Nutrition Program that provides healthy food to any student, regardless of need, in a stigma-free, accessible environment supported by caring adults in a safe, supportive atmosphere.
