Student Nutrition Program

 

Student Nutrition ProgramThe Student Nutrition Program offers a nutritious breakfast, lunch or snack, to all students in need with no barriers or discrimination.

 

Our volunteers work diligently to provide a nutritious meal improve the learning capacity, health, and well-being of children and youth in our community.

 

The program provides an ideal environment for kids to learn about nutrition, social skills, and manners.

 

One of the basic needs of children is good nutrition. Healthy foods help them to learn and be successful at school.

 

The key for children is breakfast. Children who have not had breakfast for whatever reason, (working parents, early or long bus ride, finances, etc) find it difficult to make the most of their educational opportunities.
