While hunger and poverty is a major crisis beyond the scope of our organization, we can ensure that the children living in our community go to school well nourished.
Nutrition for Learning has been a registered charitable organization since 1997. We support community based nutrition programs committed to improving the learning capacity, health and well being of children and youth in Waterloo Region.
Research has proven that students coming to school hungry don’t perform well in the classroom, have difficulty concentrating, display behavioural problems, are less alert and are often lethargic. Our programs impact the physical, cognitive, behavioural and academic needs of children and youth in Waterloo Region.
