Summer Camps

Food for Life is committed to supporting all members of a family who are struggling with hunger.

We engage with and support innovative programs that help reduce barriers to accessing healthy food, minimize risks of children being stigmatized by peers, promote food literacy, and champion the importance of parents/guardians in being leaders in supporting their children.

Nourishing Minds

With thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation, we were able to pilot the Nourishing Minds program with the Town of Oakville Community Youth Basketball League, this program has expanded to now engage Boys and Girls Clubs of Hamilton, and Support & Housing Halton.


Food for Life's role is to provide healthy food packs that contain fresh healthy food options along with a related recipe to inspire cooking within the family.

Other Camps

Year-round Food for Life supports youth-at-risk by providing healthy food bins for after-school programs and special camp-style programming.


In the summer we provide these same nutritious filled bins to 12 camp locations across Halton.  Many of these camps are run by our agency partners.
