Feeding Youth & Families Update

Jul 27, 2020

A note from Jon Norman, The Bridge Youth Centre Coordinator

What an amazing privilege it has been to be a part of something like this, feeding families together! Peterborough Youth Services, Kawartha Food Share, Food For Kids and The Bridge Youth Centre have all come together to accomplish something incredible. In just 9 weeks we have fed a total of 7463 people, 3207 of which are youth. I got emotional when I saw this. 

We have 9 more weeks to go and we are excited to keep going. Thank you to everyone who generously gives of their time, day in and day out to make this happen!” 

A few more fun statistics for you: 

527 unique families

7463 total people (2389 adults, 3207 children)

7600 lbs of produce

46640 lbs of food boxes

9800 lbs of Gatorade
