POP UP Snacks for Students

COVID 19 and Nutrition For Learning
March 18,2020


At Nutrition for Learning the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and community participants is our top priority. In light of COVID 19 , we would like to share some of the adjustments we have made as recommended by the Public Health Agency of Canada and our Region and the World Health Organization.

For the time being we have gone mobile and are doing “Pop Up Nutrition Breaks” in our school catchment areas throughout the Region. We are actively determining areas of risk and mitigating based on recommendations prescribed by Public Health. We are closely monitoring the situation and will provide timely updates to you if/when we make any changes to our service.

Food Delivery Protocol:
For the health, safety and protection of our front line staff and community participants, you can expect the following service changes and practices during upcoming deliveries: Our drivers are placing the food products at the edge of the truck and will not be passing items to children by hand, but will be placing in a paper bag . We are asking that everyone keep a social distance of 2 metres between other people on the site. The drivers all have washing stations on board and are washing before and after each stop . In addition they have plastic gloves and sanitizer on board in the truck cabs for their use.

No volunteers* are allowed on our vehicles. Only the Nutrition for Learning drivers or staff can be on board the vehicles.

If you or your family have been impacted by a case of COVID 19, it is mandatory that you report this information to us immediately.

Please avoid volunteer* activities with us if you have traveled to the affected areas or been exposed to a case of COVID-19 within the last 14 days.
If you develop:
-difficulty breathing
Within 14 days of travel , please call your health care provider or local public health authority, tell them of your symptoms and where you were travelling. To protect those around you, wash your hands often, cover your mouth an nose when coughing or sneezing. Let’s all do our bit to keep our community safe.

If you have any questions please reach out to our Community Partnerships Manager Brian at or to our Community Program manager Tania . Thanks
