Students arriving at school hungry do not perform well in the classroom. They have more difficulty concentrating, display behavioural problems, are less alert and are often lethargic.
Most sadly is that hungry kids lack the natural enthusiasm and curiosity that is part of the magic of childhood.
Working families, lack of funds for food or simply a child’s lack of interest in eating breakfast are some of the reasons children come to school hungry.
Our Mission is to inspire children and youth to make healthy food choices vital to their development by providing inclusive access to nutritious foods throughout the school day. To work with stakeholders to ensure the sustainability of and responsibility for student nutrition programs in Halton schools.
Our Vision is to strive to facilitate a student nutrition program in every school thereby improving the learning capacity, health and well being of all children and youth in Halton Region.
