“Feed All Four Fund” Provides Assistance To More Than 190 Students Over The Past Year

KAWARTHA LAKES-Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) Feed All Four Fund got a boost recently from two fundraisers.  

The Feed All Four Fund provides direct support to students and families in local communities who may be struggling. Funds are accessed through the school principal and the process is fast and confidential, allowing families access to what they need, when they need it the most.

The Board held its first-ever, staff-wide online silent auction from May 24 to June 8. All staff were invited to participate and bid on an array of 40 auction items with some of these being student and/or staff created! In total, 1,032 staff perused the auction and 230 bids were placed over the two-week period.

The second annual TLDSB Golf Tournament took place on June 8 at Muskoka Highlands Golf Course in Bracebridge. 64 golfers, which included trustees, senior administration, principals/vice-principals, community partners, central Board staff, and friends spent the day on the course playing 18 holes.

Through fundraisers such as these, and donations from staff and community partners, the Feed All Four Fund has been able to provide the equivalent of $188,000 in gift cards and services directly to TLDSB students and families since December 2020. There were over 190 requests for assistance in the 2023-2024 school year alone.
