Feeding Our Future

Getting nutritious lunches to kids who need them for a happy, healthy summer.

Bridging the gap from June to September

Feeding Our Future was launched in 2012 and has grown to become Canada’s largest free summer lunch program. School food programming is an essential part of childhood nutrition and to ensure children don’t go without during the summer months, Feeding Our Future was created.    

Second Harvest has delivered 551,221 lunches to children accessing free or subsidized summer camps across the city. 

During the pandemic, the program evolved from supporting children and youth attending day camps with healthy bag lunches, to takeaway kits for families. We were able to deliver 41,395 kits to summer camps.

For the summer of 2023, the program is returning to preparing sandwiches to deliver to camps across the city. 

A camp application form will be available in May 2023.  Any questions about the program can be directed to
