Our Kids Count is a non-profit, charitable, community development organization that fosters community by empowering individuals to build stronger families & inclusive communities. Some of the programs we offer are community kitchens/cooking workshops, pre/post-natal advice, mentorship programs, parents & young parents support groups/classes & counselling.

Our Community Kitchen programs focus on teaching families /individuals /children the importance of healthy eating & the art of healthy cooking. By providing them steady access to fresh fruits & vegetables- which they cannot afford to buy always due to limited budgets- we help address nutrition & food insecurity concerns.

We are seeking public support to help purchase food, fruits and vegetables throughout 2016, for the many different kitchen programs we offer to all demographics including older adults, teens, kids and families with children.

Over the years, families have come to trust and rely on our services, especially in times of great need because of the community approach to service that is demonstrated by our staff. Our outreach model has brought more families to our doorsteps- families that need our help the most. The increase in participation has naturally led to increased costs that are not covered in our budget.

We are finding it more and more difficult to meet the needs of the families we support and we do not want to turn anyone away. So, we are turning to you to help us support local families in need.

We need your help so we can continue to provide Real help… Right here… Right now…. for families that need it most!

Please help, share and donate.

For cash and cheque donations please make payable to Our Kids Count Thunder Bay.

Address: 704 McKenzie Street, Thunder Bay, ON. P7C 3L4
