WHAT WE DO: Social Empowerment
Empowering Canada’s Indigenous People
The Schroeder Foundation is focused on increasing food security and Indigenous empowerment in Winnipeg’s core neighbourhoods. The Foundation runs numerous charitable initiatives aimed at providing nutritious food for students and their families including a food bank outreach program at St. John’s High School, which delivers 100 food hampers to households (increased to a maximum of 170 during the pandemic) and employs community service workers to deliver them. The Foundation also funds a school cafeteria that provides free breakfast and free or heavily subsidized lunches for 150 students daily.
