It is a known fact that many children in our community often go to school hungry and that saddens us immensely at My Little Green Shop. Even worse is knowing that many inner city schools who need to offer a lunch program do not simply due to a lack of funds.
To be better informed on how serious this issue is in Vancouver read this December 19th, 2012 article in The Vancouver Sun titled 'Captain Cook In Dire Need of Food.'
We, the owners of My Little Green Shop, strongly believe in giving back to our community and so this December we will be donating 5 % of proceeds to the Adopt-a-School Program. This program was launched by The Vancouver Sun soon after publishing a letter by Vancouver inner city elementary school teacher Carrie Gelson in the fall of 2011. Carrie had written an open letter to the public describing the sad conditions under which many of her students were living.

With a little help from many who can easily afford to help, many local, disadvantaged children can have much better lives.
