A recent study suggested that over 30% of frequenters of Food Banks Canada are children. In an effort to ensure these Canadian families understand the fundamentals of food and nutritional health, Nestlé Canada has partnered with Food Banks Canada to support two programs -- the After the Bell Program and the Food Explorers Cooking Club. The former program supports children in the summer months with healthy food deliveries and the latter program teaches children to cook using healthy recipes from various cultures.
This new partnership with Food Banks Canada is part of 'Nestlé for Healthier Kids' -- a global initiative that seeks to improve the health and wellbeing of over 50 million kids globally by 2030. This nutritional development by Nestlé speaks to the growing number of companies worldwide committed to supporting children's health initiatives.
