The School Council provides a Healthy Snack to every classroom every school day!

The PURPOSE of the program is to educate our students about making healthy choices through creating a “culture of nutrition” in the school. FUNDING for this program comes from grants from the North Bay Association for Community Living nutrition program, Trillium Lakelands School Board, and from individual donations (contact the School Office to arrange).

VOLUNTEERS are the heart of this program! Just 12-18 people are needed each year, shifts are 30-40 min. each, and fruit is pre-cut & ready to tray. Please consider taking a turn with:

□   PM kitchen clean-up and snack prep(weekdays, anytime noon to 10pm)

□   AM snack prep/delivery to classrooms(ideally by 8:45am each school morning)

□   Shopping for groceries 1-2 times/week(as needed to keep stocked)
