Food for Learning provides food to over 10,000 local children each school year, in the form of a balanced breakfast, healthy snack or nutritious lunch. Schools within the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board; the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board; Conseil des Ecoles Publiques de l'Est de l'Ontario; and the Quinte Mohawk School are offering student nutrition programs daily.

Food for Learning is a source of administrative, financial
and organizational support for schools offering student nutrition programs. Food for Learning, the education sector and the community at large are working together to meet our goal of providing food to all children who are in need of a supplement to their daily nutritional intake, whether it is one day of the school year or every day.

Food for Learning primarily provides funding for student nutrition programs (breakfast, lunch, snack), however, we recognize that there are many other food related activities that occur during the school year, each benefiting students by providing nutrition. 

Food for Learning will now accept applications for funding to support projects/events hosted by local schools. 

The focus of this funding is to explore innovative projects/events/activities that promote the mission of Food for Learning and will provide nutrition to students in an effort to enhance learning. 

Please click here for the Special Project funding request form.



You could help impact the daily lives of children and youth by ensuring that they have the nourishment they need to learn and succeed.

Schools throughout Hastings and Prince

Edward counties need volunteers to help them with their breakfast programs.

  Volunteers are needed to shop for groceries, prepare and serve food to children, assist with paper work and so much more! 

Whether you have time just one morning a week or several, you can help!

For more information please contact Kellie Brace (613) 966-1170, ext. 2232.



VP Carswell Elementary School's apple day


On September 12, 2013, as part of our open house day, we provided each student in the school with a nice red shinny apple as a way to promote both healthy eating and the Food for Learning program. 158 students enjoyed apples!!! It was a hit and kids are still talking about it.

Food for Learning's Feed the Meter campaign has begun in the communities of Belleville, Trenton and Picton.
