What is the Grande Prairie Schools Snack Program?
The Mission of the Grande Prairie Schools Snack Program is to
relieve child hunger, to improve behavior and academic performance,
to provide nutrition education and to influence healthy lifestyle choices.
The Snack Program is operated by the GPCSD Education Foundation, with the support of community members, companies, and organizations. For the past 16 years the Snack Program has been able to offer those in need, breakfast items, fresh fruit and emergency lunches.
What is the Government of Alberta’s School Nutrition Program?
The Nutrition program will be offering students in K-6 a daily nutritious breakfast that adheres to the Alberta Nutrition Guidelines for Children and Youth. The meal will be offered to all students that wish to participate. This new program funding has allowed the Grande Prairie Schools Snack Program to expand their serves to help all students in need in all 10 Elementary Grande Prairie & District Catholic Schools!
How does the new Nutrition Program operate in your school?
Each morning a community fridge is stocked by school volunteers. The breakfast items are selected to meet the Alberta Nutrition Guidelines for children and youth. Students that are in need of breakfast are welcome to the community fridge before the start of class.
Where are the Donations for the Grande Prairie Schools Snack Program allocated too?
The Government of Alberta Nutrition Program provides funding for breakfast for k-6 students. The Grande Prairie Schools Snack Program will continue to supplement this program to ensure that all students, including junior high will also have access to a nutritious meal when in need. In Addition to breakfast the Grande Prairie Schools Snack Program supplements snacks and emergency lunches as well.
The continued support from our community for the Grande Prairie Schools Snack Program allows us to provide a service for all those in need in all our schools.
"Thank you" to everyone who contributes to fueling the bodies and brains of our students!
