SUMMER POP UPSince mid-March everything has changed dramatically regarding the need for healthy food for students who would normally really on our student nutrition programs at school. Since the schools closed their doors, we have revised how we do deliver food to meet this need with a mobile “Pop Up Snack” program. This summer the need for healthy food will continue to be a concern for many families and Nutrition for Learning will continue their POPUP SNACK program.

Children across Waterloo Region need us now, more than ever. This is a difficult time and the reality is many families in our community are struggling to put food on the table. We started the first week by distributing 100 bags a week and it has quickly grown to 500 bags per day and continues to grow. As well we continue to hear from teachers about the concern and the need of students who rely on our programs in their communities.

Our Pop-Up Snack Program distributes approximately 500 bags with a selection of food items that were normally available to students when Nutrition for learning programs were still in the schools such as yogurt, cheese, applesauce, healthy crackers, or cereal etc. A bag is offered to each student in a family in attendance at that location and consists of enough snacks for several days.

Together we can do this.

 

ALL OF OUR VEHICLES WILL HAVE A NUTRITION FOR LEARNING SIGN ON IT AND THE STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS WILL BE IDENTIFIABLE WITH EITHER A NUTRITION FOR LEARNING APRON OR T-SHIRT.
