students are malnourished
Children in your area are hungry. They are vulnerable and their chances of success are compromised. Support HUNGRY TO HELP
Teachers and primary school administrators in the National Capital Region identify children who are in need and who are experiencing difficulties related to their poor nutrition. With the agreement of the parents, the schools submit a request for food aid to FAIM D’IDER who coordinates a mission of aid on behalf of the children.
HUNGER TO HELP buys meals from a company at regular prices who prepare and deliver them every day. Designated children receive a meal, free of charge, at the same time and in the same manner as students whose parents ordered and paid for the meal. This procedure ensures the anonymity and confidentiality of our intervention.
In 2017-2018, despite 4000 meals provided to needy students in 12 schools, we were not able to meet all the requests submitted which increase and exceed our financial availability. We want to mobilize the community to prevent the major social and human consequences linked to malnutrition.
Combating hunger among disadvantaged elementary school children in the National Capital Region is our daily mission.
Protecting the privacy and dignity of students and their families in need is of paramount importance in the pursuit of our mission.
A hungry child cannot concentrate on his lessons and reduces his chances of finishing his studies; and thus the cycle of poverty continues.

about the foundation and our cause
In our school, there is a specialized education class in which students need a very structured environment. The team of education had noticed that the lunch box of one of student contained little nutritious food. Hungry to Help agreed to sponsor this student. This sponsorship ensures the student a healthy diet at lunchtime, which promotes his capacity to concentration in class in the afternoon. Many thanks to the Foundation.
"I am writing on behalf of the students at École Laurier-Carrière who receive three hot dinners a week thanks to your sponsorship... Sometimes they exchange desserts among themselves, but at the end of the meal, there is never any leftover. It is with a heart filled with gratitude that they thank you for your kindness. Thanks to these nourishing and delicious meals, they get the necessary energy supply to continue their day."
"As for the Hunger Help program, I wanted to convey to you that the children concerned have sunshine in their eyes and a smile on their face when they come to my table. For two in particular, it is as if they receive a gift every noon so they are excited. It is really beautiful to see. They thank every day. It was important to me that you know how much your contribution makes and is appreciated. Thank you for them and have a good weekend"
It is thanks to HUNGER TO HELP that these children have the energy to go back to class and learn new material. Indeed, children who go to hungry school lose an average of 132 minutes of learning per day ... i.e. a total of 4 whole months of the school year (Gregory, 2016). These children need energy to learn.
Hunger to help is an essential partner for the well-being of our students. They greatly help us to be able to offer them a caring environment. It allows children who benefit from it to be able to focus on their learning.
A big thank you for everything you do for the children, long life on the program !!
