Power Full Kids Eat Well

Power Full Kids at School

School provides children with structure and social connections – particularly for our most vulnerable, who may be experiencing food insecurity or unstable situations at home. That’s why President’s Choice Children’s Charity has dedicated resources to help educators and administrators provide their students good food every day, and empower them with food skills.
