#GivingTuesdayCa, December 1st, 2020 directly following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, marks the “Opening Day of the Giving Season”.
This year give the gift of healthy food to a Halton child to fuel a full day of learning! Give to Halton Food for Thought.
Students arrive at school hungry for many reasons, leaving them unprepared to focus on a full day of learning. COVID related challenges mean that reliable access to nutritious food for our students is more important than ever.
During a “typical” school year, Halton Food for Thought partners with the Boards of Education, the Ministry of Community and Social Services and the community to deliver Student Nutrition Programs in our schools. These volunteer-led programs provided over 80,000 Halton students access to healthy food at school.
This year is anything but “typical”. As such, in partnership with the Halton Catholic District School Board and the Halton District School Board HFFT has pivoted to ensure food is still available to students during the school day in accordance with Public Health, safe food handling and Ministry of Education guidelines. Following enhanced health and safety protocols, we are providing HFFT partner schools prepackaged, non-perishable snacks via the Grab & Go Healthy Food Box program.
When we feed kids at school, we offer them their best chance for success. We want kids to reach their full potential and lead healthy, active lives.
These are our students, and they deserve the best chance at success. Imagine the difference you can make by helping to lessen the gap for our students.
