An isthmus connects two parts. In our case, bringing food to hungry children.
At Isthmus we provide food for hungry kids on weekends when they would otherwise go hungry. While there are numerous feeding programs for children during school hours, Isthmus fills the gaps between Friday and Monday.
It is difficult to break the cycle of poverty without an education; it is impossible to learn when you are hungry.
We feed more than 450,000 meals to kids across Canada every year, however there are many more that still go hungry. With your help, we take care of the urgent need of Canadian children to be fed so that they can learn and grow.
Our program has been shown to improve children’s test scores, reading skills, health and attendance, as well as showing a positive influence on students’ behaviour.
