Island Roast raises funds for school meals

“Feed Our Future” held its 6th annual fundraiser for its nutrition programmes for school students from low-income families. The Saturday (8 October) event on Seven Mile Beach featured live music and samples from several restaurants.

“The proceeds will go toward the children that we support each school year,” said Feed Our Future chair Stacey Vandeveld. “This school year we already have 170 children that we support daily to get their fuel, their nutrition while they’re at school.”

Ms. Vandeveld says it costs Feed Our Future around $1,000 per child per year to ensure they have nutritious school lunches. The group also has a summer programme for children who need fresh meat and fruit as part of a healthy diet when school meals are not available.
