Halton Food for Thought (HFFT) is proud to partner with Food for Life (FFL) to provide Halton elementary and secondary students universal access to nutritious, perishable, and non-perishable food to fuel their learning. We will provide weekly HFFT Healthy Student Snack Bags that consist of a minimum of 3 nutritious snacks per student per school day, e.g. (fresh fruit, cheese, granola bars). There is no fee or registration required.
Together we have built an inclusive and safe plan to meet student needs, whether they learn from home or in person, during these changing and challenging times.
- Using Food for Life’s current distribution system we will provide weekly snack bag deliveries to FFL designated priority neighborhoods across Halton. Community Pick up stations will be set up for families to access these snack bags.
- To reach students outside of these designated neighbourhoods, we also have several strategically placed community pickup locations across Halton to ensure ease of access.
- The list of available community pickup locations will expand as we continue to identify appropriate distribution partners and community need. See page 2/3 of HFFT Healthy Student Snack Bag FAQ for a list of current pick up locations . Note: As per the chart on page 2, families can pick up snack bags at whichever location is most convenient for them. Registration is not required.
HFFT Healthy Student Snack Bags support student success whether they learn from home or in person. These are our students, and they deserve our support, now more than ever!
Together we #FeedTheirFuture!
