Tacada is proud to sponsor a school for the Food for Thought program for the 2022/23 school year.
Food for Thought is a non-profit program that runs through Edmonton Public Schools and provides food for hungry school children. The program began in 2002 after Carol and Bernie Kowalchuk read in the newspaper that the neediest schools in Edmonton receive funding for school-wide lunch programs, but that children in other schools went hungry. They decided to do something about it and started funding hot lunch programs for needy students in one of Edmonton’s schools.
Since then the program has grown to:
- 20 schools served
- ~800 students served daily
- 100% of funds go to providing food for the students
In the 2020/21 school year, Food for Thought served its millionth meal and to celebrate has started a community garden.
Tacada’s contribution is supporting approximately 100 kids per day at our designated school to have breakfast and a snack each day.
