Hot Lunch/Healthy Snacks
Nutrition News – Hot Lunch/Healthy Snack Program:
We are so pleased to be able to offer this program for our students again. We will continue to try and follow the Canada Food Guide and make the meals appealing to all the students.
A major challenge has been ensuring the safety of our students with severe allergies. We really appreciate the open lines of communication and all the help we have received directly from parents in this area.
A special thank you to all the moms and grandmas who have come in to help us with the lunches so far. All the extra help is greatly appreciated. If you are interested in volunteering, please add a note to your child’s hot lunch form or give me a call.
