I love delivering the bins of food in the morning and watching the kids’ faces as they try to sneak a peek of what is being served that day. I can see first hand the difference our nutrition program makes, not only to the children who rely on the program, but for all of the students to be included in a communal meal together.
No student is ever isolated or centred out. They know that the door to the kitchen is always open and all are welcome. The SNP program is more than just food. It’s a whole community sharing and working together.
The breakfast club at our school is an essential part of our students school educational day whether they have a bagel, a few slices of cheese or an apple. We are very fortunate to be able to provide these items for our school population” – Susan McEwen, Coordinator, Holy Cross CSS Student Nutrition Program
Volunteering with a School Breakfast Club is such a fun and rewarding way to be involved in out community. Helping other schools with appliances etc. is a great way to meet other volunteers and experience other programs.” – Joe McCulloch, Volunteer, Prince of Wales PS Student Nutrition Program
All Eastdale CVI students are able to enjoy a healthy, free breakfast every morning, courtesy of our donors, and our dedicated volunteers. Some of the food items we provide to over 50 students per day include bagels, muffins, fresh fruit, yogurt, applesauce, granola bars, and cereals. Our students are very thankful for the food we provide!!” – Steve Edmunds, Teacher, Eastdale CVI
