Real Food for Real Kids - Fruits and Veggies

In 2008, when the Real Food Lunch Club program started in elementary schools, RFRK created a subsidy program called Real Food Forward (RFF).

RFF leverages donations from RFRK, parents, and generous community members, into free or subsidized lunches for students that need a helping hand. Since its implementation, RFF has provided over 29,000 free meals to students in elementary schools throughout the GTA!

Real Food Lunch Club (RFLC)
Integrated Subsidies:

  • For every 20 students registered at an RFLC school, one student will receive a free subscription to the program
  • Principals identify the student(s) and communicate with RFRK directly for registration
  • Those who participate in RFF are kept confidential

Parent Donations:

When students are absent, parents have the option to be reimbursed or donate their RFLC lunch credits to students in need
