Response to COVID-19 Closing of SCHOOLS
to ensure access of healthy food and snacks for hungry children

In response to COVID 19 on our school community who cannot access student nutrition at schools while they are closed Nutrition for Learning has responded by delivering food to various school locations in Waterloo Region to ensure students can continue to be able to access essential nutritious snacks and food items while schools are closed.


Your gift can help us to ensure that vulnerable children who can’t access student nutrition programs while schools are closed in our community can continue to receive nutritional food.

Many students come to school hungry or do not have food to eat. By providing a nutritious breakfast to every student, we ensure that no students are hungry when the school day begins. A healthy, well-rounded breakfast gives children the same opportunity to learn that day.

We also have morning meals which are either meals during the school day (e.g. recess time or nutrition breaks) with food bins for classrooms. With enough funding for our nutrition programs, we can even support an entire school’s morning meals!
