St. Bernadette Newswire: Nutrition For Learning POP Up Sites

Good morning Bears Families!
Nutrition for Learning is providing a number of “Pop-Up” sites in our region.

Each morning starting at a time and location to be posted on the Nutrition for Learning website and social media channels our Nutrition for Learning van will be offering free snacks, yogurt, granola bars and cheese strings for school kids. The route will be posted on the Nutrition for Learning website at 8 am each day. Nutrition for Learning 

Nutrition for Learning will have volunteers walking with coolers beside our van down the streets posted on our website to meet kids at the end of their driveway or walkway but no congregating around the van/ truck will be allowed and we will ensure participants maintain social distancing (keeping 2 arms’ lengths or 2 meters between each child).
All Nutrition for Learning staff and volunteers have police vulnerable sector checks and have been trained in safe food handling and abide by all public health rules.
“We know our donors want us to be there for the students and we know how important it is to ensure our community overall safety first, as well as our staff, the kids, and the food. All the items we would distribute will be sealed and handled safely. We just want to get out to the kids.” states Mary D’Alton at Nutrition for Learning.
Nutrition for Learning is in 147 locations in Waterloo Region serving 3.5 million food items a year with universal access to food for hungry kids and minds.
