Welcome back to a new school year! Nutrition for Learning is gearing up to serve nutritious snacks to the students once again and we sure are excited!
Every year NFL serves the students of our wonderful school around 7800 snacks per week as well as provide the high school with hot breakfast free of charge 5 days a week. Here’s a little about who we are and what we do for any new teachers or just as a reminder.
Nutrition for Learning was started many years ago, and in the beginning it was run by a small group of moms. Wow - how we have grown thanks to the support of the school, community, and teachers. NFL now employs 2 Coordinators and a director and has countless volunteers and board members who keep the program running. We count on various grants and donations to fund our program, and donations are always welcome!
A bit about myself: I was born and raised in B.C. and moved here with my husband and 2 children in 2009. We love it here and enjoy the outdoors, horses and camping. I started as the Coordinator in 2018 and really enjoy running the program and all it offers to the students and community.
Nutrition for Learning’s purpose is to provide children with the fundamental nutritional building blocks which will sustain their quality of life now and in the future. We do this by providing nutritious morning snacks 3 days per week. We hope to fuel all students to achieve their highest learning goals and thrive in the educational setting. NFL also supplies the office with bagged lunches for students who are unable to get a forgotten lunch brought in.
Our program runs in RVS Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Snack is delivered in bins to classroom doors between 8:30 and 10 am. I have also had the pleasure of having a snack helper class to assist with counting and delivering, not to mention countless valued volunteers as well.
