SPECIAL PROJECT FUNDING
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.
STARTING THE YEAR OFF RIGHT
VP CARSWELL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
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.
