1 in 5 children are living in poverty
Weekend Fuelbag has two goals: take the first key steps to enabling students to end the poverty cycle and inspiring all to create change. In a country where education and healthcare are free and accessible to most, how is it that poverty is still so rampant. In British Columbia, 1 in 5 children are living in poverty! This is a problem that affects over 200 000 children and the loved ones around them. There is a direct link between malnourishment and poor health and improper education. We give children food every weekend, 52 weeks a year, to allow students to come to school healthy and ready to learn. By supporting Weekend Fuelbag you are enabling students to take control of circumstances they did not decide and allowing them to break the cycle of poverty in our local communities!
