Lunches for Learning

St. Vincent Place Lunches for Learning ~ Deadline to Register Mar. 15th

LUNCHES FOR LEARNING

Registration for Lunches for Learning is now open. 🙂
This registration period will run from March 19 to June 18.
Did You Know… One in five children are at risk of going to school hungry. When kids are hungry at school, it can have very real, negative consequences: kids who are hungry at school are more likely to have lower grades, have to repeat years, and struggle with developmental impairments. Additionally, when students have a small (or no) lunch at school, they might be embarrassed and impacted socially.
That’s why the Lunches for Learning campaign was launched at St. Vincent Place.

Lunches for LearningParents and guardians of school-age children (4 to 17) are eligible to receive a package of school-safe lunch foods, enough for one to two weeks’ worth of lunches (depending on the child’s age and appetite).

Each package will contain such school lunch products as: granola bars, crackers, juice boxes, fresh fruit and vegetables, sandwich bread, puddings, fruit cups, cheese strings/slices, and yogurt cups.

40 spots available, with a limited number of delivery spots
DEADLINE TO SIGN UP FOR THE NEXT REGISTRATION PERIOD
MARCH 15TH

There are 40 spots available, with a limited number of delivery spots. They will be filled on a first come-first served basis. Once the spots are filled, families can be placed on a waiting list in case any registered family pulls out of the program.

To sign up, get in touch with Sara by March 15 at 3pm. You can call 705-253-2770 ext. 4, email [email protected], or message the Facebook page.

** Note: If you are a current Lunches for Learning client, you DO need to re-register for this period! **
