Food For Thought
RVS recognizes the importance of daily nutrition and believes healthy eating is a key component in educational success. Food For Thought is a program that partners RVS with local groups to promote healthy eating and provide nutritious breakfast in a secure environment to students. The program is available to any student at participating schools in need of food – our motto is, “if you are hungry, eat!” Funding is provided through grants, donations and in-kind services from national, provincial and local groups.
Volunteers are crucial in supporting Food For Thought. If you are interested in volunteering at one of our schools, please visit Volunteers & Visitors and speak to your school’s administrator.
We would like to thank Breakfast Clubs of Canada, President’s Choice Children’s Charity, the Provincial School Nutrition Program and various local community partners for their support of the Food For Thought program.
To donate to Food for Thought, visit the CanadaHelps website.
RVS is grateful to our community partners who provide support to individuals and families in need and support healthy eating initiatives in schools. These include:
