We believe in the power of food

The issue

We live in a country that has an abundance of healthy, nutritious food and yet so many children go hungry. Many more do not understand the importance of nutrition and its impact on their well-being. The statistics in Canada are staggering – over 1 million children are at risk of going hungry and childhood obesity has tripled since 1979.

Our purpose

To put the power of food into the hands of Canadian children.

Our belief

We believe access to good food and food education provides the foundation, so children can learn and grow, improving their well-being, making a positive contribution to the world around them – now, and in the future.

Board of Directors

It is the Board of Directors duty to ensure that President's Choice Children's Charity meets the charity's focus as well as adhering to the eligibility criteria of grant requests.

Our Impact

We believe nothing will create better conditions for success than nourishing our kids, which is why in 2017 we committed $150 million over the next 10 years to tackle childhood hunger by feeding kids good food and teaching kids food knowledge.
