Thanks to the Chatham-Kent Student Nutrition Program, a Snack Program was established in November, 2008 and is available to all students at Zone Township Central School. Each year Nutrition Grant applications are submitted by Zone Township Central School to the Ontario Student Nutrition Program. HOW IT WORKS:
- Staff member purchases the groceries.
- Volunteers (community members, parents) prepare the snacks.
- Students pack the snacks in bins before school begins each morning.
- Students deliver the bins to classroom at the beginning of each day.
- All students enjoy a nutritious snack.
A very special thanks goes out to all the volunteers who donate their time towards the program. All Zone students benefit greatly from a nutritious snack each morning! A very special thank you goes to Cargill Shetland and Elliott Shetland Farms for their generous donation again to Zone's Snack Program. On December 10, 2015, Eric Johnson and Rick Elliott presented the cheque in the amount of $1,252 to Principal, Eryn Smit and Snack Co-ordinator Corinne Elliott. Another big thank you also goes out to the Bothwell Fire Fighters Association who donated $500.00 in October/2015 and Farm Credit Canada who donated $250.00 in March/2016.
