I'm sure you've seen many community fridges popping up around your neighbourhood lately. This phenomenon is a testament to your community's kindness and direct response to the food insecurity crisis made worst by the pandemic. The needy take what they need and the community donate what it can. Just how awesome is that?

This printable holiday activity encourages giving, acts of kindness and good deeds in children.

Let's get started!
