ABOUT
THE CREW

Our lunch program started at Edith Cavell school in 2013.

 

Since then we have grown to feed over 900 children each week in 14 different schools throughout Niagara Falls, Welland and St. Catharines. Through partnerships and support from passionate individuals who believe in our vision we continue to grow; working together to ensure that every child will have access to quality food every day.

Community giving is future building.

 

We are dedicated to providing nutritious lunches and hope throughout the school year to children who need it most. But it’s more than just lunches. Our program helps to empower children, unite businesses and supporters through community engagement. By working together we help inspire and nurture our leaders of tomorrow by providing them with the tools and knowledge to help make a difference.

Ways to get Involved.

Throughout the year we host different events to help expand the program. This is all made possible because of our amazing  Crew Partners.  From our Annual Night of Miracles Gala to our Superkids Day all of our events are open to the public to attend so be sure to follow us on social to keep up to date.

Have you heard about some of the amazing Difference Maker events that people have hosted? These are fundraisers that members of our community will run on their own to help support Community Crew. From trivia to paint nights or getting Casual For Kids, businesses and individuals alike have hosted different events to help collect donations and supplies for our program. The possibilities are endless. Looking for ways to host your own difference maker fundraiser? Check out our tips and info to help get you started.

Volunteers are an integral part to Community Crew. We are always looking for passionate individuals to help out. Whether it’s for lunch prep, delivery or assisting at an event there is plenty of ways you can get involved. If you are interested in joining the crew, fill out an application and a member of our team will follow up with you.

“The students who help Community Crew on delivery day really look forward to it every week. It’s a way for them to show their leadership. For the students that are benefitting from the program, it allows them to see the full cycle and pay it forward.”
