Get involved!

 

We really appreciate your offer to help! This 2020/2021 school year, we need volunteers to help us prepare snack bags for students. We have two locations for preparation of the snack bags and will offer a morning and afternoon volunteering shift. We are ensuring that we are working within current public health directive by offering masks and/or face shields to each volunteer, practicing physical distancing (each volunteer will work at there own station) and, each volunteer will be able to sign up for food safe handling certification.

It would assist us if you would complete this form and return it to Tania Moser by email tmoser@nutritionforlearning.ca, we will use this information to help us determine where and when we can add additional support for this initiative.

As well, it is important to note that volunteering during this time has an inherent risk. We do not expect any of our staff or volunteers to put themselves at risk. If you wish to volunteer, based on the protocols set out on our website, we require you to review & sign the attached release.

“Life is divided into three parts. We Learn, Earn, Return. The smiles I get from the kids and teachers are worth a fortune. I know that I am helping these students to a better life in their health and studies.”
