Due to the support from President's Choice Children's Charity, we are able to offer our Project Backpack program to 25 participants aged six to 14+ for the 2021-2022 school year! The program provides participants and their families with a weekly bag of groceries as well as resources to help with recipes, meal planning, and general nutritional capacity. You can view the resources here. A special thank you to Operation Grow and the North Simcoe Youth Wellness Hub (NSYWH) for partnering with us on this initiative!

To engage children and youth in reading over the summer, 31 participants received a delivery of three books each and opportunities to participate in virtual read-alongs and check-ins to deepen their enjoyment of reading. Thank you to the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation for their support!
In a partnership between BGC North Simcoe, the North Simcoe Youth Wellness Hub and Chigamik, ten local families were provided with the ability to cook vegetarian meals over the course of four weeks. A package including legumes, rice, local vegetables, and all ingredients necessary to complete the weekly recipe were distributed out to families over the course of the program. A big thank you to GlobalMedic for providing a donation of hygiene supplies for families, as well as the Summertime Eat Well program, sponsored by President's Choice Children's Charity!
