One in five Kiwi kids lives in poverty. As their families struggle to make ends meet, children often arrive at school without the essentials they need. Kids can't learn when they are cold, wet and hungry, so they miss out on education, and the opportunity for a better future. KidsCan partners with nearly 1000 schools and early childhood centres across New Zealand, providing food, warm jackets, shoes and socks and basic health items.
Donations from organisations such as the Acorn Foundation allow KidsCan to continue the vital work it does in local communities throughout the country. The distribution from the Acorn Foundation feeds hungry children, it puts warm jackets on kids on wet winter mornings and shoes on cold, damp little feet. For children who have very little, this is life changing.
In 2021 KidsCan received almost $5000 from Craigs Investment Partners and Number Works 'n' Words, feeding thousands of pre-schoolers with hot meals.
