Healthy Snack/Basket Program

Sheridan’s Healthy Snack / Healthy Basket Program

2016-2017 is our tenth year providing Sheridan students with nutritious snacks.  Our healthy basket program, provides students who have finished all of their food from home with a small snack such as a fruit cup, apple sauce or nutrigrain bar to keep their tummies full until home time.

How are we funded?
Halton Food For Thought (HFFT) is an amazing organization which provides the main support for our programs.   It is through hard work, dedication and a lot of fundraising that HFFT is able to provide us with the money to run our programs.   HFFT’s mission statement is “to inspire children and youth to make healthy food choices vital to their development by providing inclusive access to nutritious foods throughout the school day.”  Check out HFFT’s website for further information:  www.haltonfoodforthough.ca
