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.

Free Parking? The decision of what to do with that extra change should be an easy one.  Local municipalities have offered free parking for the month of December downtown Belleville, Picton and Trenton, however, Food for Learning would appreciate it if you would continue to “feed the meter”. Beginning on Saturday, November 28 2015 when you put money in a parking meter, it will be a donation in support of Food for Learning’s breakfast, snack and lunch programs in local schools.

2015 meter

This year’s goal for the Feed the Meter campaign is $30,000.  Please Feed the Meter when visiting downtown Belleville, Picton, or Trenton this holiday season!

A special thank  you to all of our sponsors, the community and each municipality.

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.



Schools within Hastings and Prince Edward counties who wish to offer Food for Learning programs are required to submit a registration form every September.
