Tiny Bundles program for pregnant moms, families

The Now-backed Race for Babies event is a yearly fundraiser for Surrey Food Bank’s Tiny Bundles, a program specifically designed for pregnant moms and families with babies aged newborn to one year.

Without question, pregnancy and the first year of a baby’s life are critically important for healthy development. Proper nutrition and support lays a good foundation for the rest of their lives.

Tiny Bundles moms receive a food hamper every week (instead of every two weeks), as well as fresh eggs and milk while pregnant or nursing. Hampers are supplemented with fresh vegetables and

other nutritional items when available.

New parents receive a baby layette when their baby is born and a grad gift package when the baby turns one year old.

Tiny Bundles moms are eligible to receive assistance from the food bank once a week on Wednesdays

from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tiny Bundles mothers are also provided with toiletries and other products when available.

More details about the Tiny Bundles program are posted at Surreyfoodbank. org/programs/tinybundles, or call 604-581-5443.
