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.

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! If you have some time in the mornings and would like to help 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.

FEED THE METER 2013
Food for Learning's Feed the Meter campaign was a great success again this past December, raising $28,657 for student nutrition programs in Belleville, Trenton, Prince Edward County, Stirling and North Hastings.
A very special thank you to the people in these participating communities for giving so generously and 'feeding' the parking meters. This campaign is an example of how every little bit helps.
We would also like to thank our campaign sponsors, who provide support which ensures that 100% of the funds collected in a community are returned to their local schools.
