We are pleased to host the Poco Blues: The Brunch Series to raise funds for our ongoing project - Starfish.
 
The Starfish Pack Program provides back packs of food every Friday during the school year to a limited number of children from needy homes. Presently we are serving 34 children in four schools in Port Coquitlam: Ecole Irvine Elementary, Birchland Elementary, Cedar Dr Elementary and Kwayhquitlam Middle School.
 
Starfish supplements the schools breakfast and lunch programs where these and other children have access to, by giving them food to take home for the weekend when there are no supporting programs for them. It has been proven that hungry children do not learn well and do poorly in school, develop behavourial issues and can become involved in anti-social activities later in life. It is our hope to able to make a difference early on in the child's life to short circuit that.
 
Join us at our fun fund raising event featuring great music, an awesome brunch buffet, games and activities, raffles, a live auction and much more in order to expand our program and help more children in the community.The demand is at least 5 times more than we are currently serving.
