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