When we started the Real Food Lunch Club (RFLC) program in elementary schools, we created a subsidy program called Real Food Forward (RFF). RFF leverages contributions from RFRK, parents and generous community members, to provide free meals for families that need a helping hand.
Did you know that families registered in the RFLC have the option to Pay It Forward to help a family in need? If you plan for your child to be absent on a lunch service day, simply choose “Pay It Forward” when completing the absence form and your refund will go directly towards subsidizing a free meal.
Since its introduction in 2008, RFF has provided over 31,600 free meals to students in elementary schools across the GTA!
For more information on how to participate as an RFF recipient, contact your school principal.
