Lunch Program

Scientific research provides compelling evidence that under-nutrition negatively impacts behaviour, school performance and cognitive development in children. The School Meal Program provides a nutritious lunch for hungry students, those students who for financial reasons, find it difficult to bring a lunch to school. School staff have noted that a good lunch helps students concentrate and learn better, get along more appropriately in the classroom and have improved social skills and manners.

Funding for this program is provided by The Ministry of Education. Lunches cost the District approximately $4.00 each. The Ministry asks families to contribute only $1.00 per lunch per child -- this would amount to approximately $20.00 per month per child. If you are financially distressed and cannot pay the full amount - a partial contribution is greatly accepted. Every loonie helps to keep this Program going!

Please note: Students who have food allergies, must provide a medical note stating the child’s name and specific allergy along with the physician’s signature and printed name to ensure that they will receive an appropriate lunch. Unfortunately this Program cannot accommodate those students with multiple allergies.

If your child qualifies to participate in the School Meal Program, please complete the form below and return it either to your child’s classroom teacher or directly to the office by the end of the week.

All information and contribution amounts are kept strictly confidential.
