RPE is happy to support our local community by purchasing 33 meal kits for children facing food insecurity in Surrey. Bites for Kids initiative was started after learning about the immense need for weekend food programs catered to elementary school children. Many of them depend on breakfast and lunch programs during normal school days; however, they lack sufficient nutrition once the weekend arrives.
Each Bites for Kids kit contains 6 meals plus snacks/fresh produce. This incredible organization' s mission is to include more nutritious food items to ensure children are well nourished when they arrive to school on Mondays. Food is delivered on Fridays to schools with an identified population of children in need.
