Good Buy to Hunger

Community is #1 at New Horizon Co-op! Thank you for continuing to support the Grande Prairie & District Catholic Schools Education Foundation. Your support allows the GP Schools Snack Program to enhance our schools nutrition program.


Many programs across Canada are seeking ways to increase school spirit while complying with these new restrictions. Initially, the Grande Prairie School Snacks Program switched from student-accessed community fridges to a system where meals were made available in the office upon request. However, they quickly identified that students were less comfortable eating breakfast at school with their new socially distanced service method. Fewer students were eating breakfast at the schools served by the Snack Program. The program leaders saw the reluctance and reduced attendance as a symptom of the stigma associated with child hunger.
