Healthy Snack Bin/Healthy Breakfast Programs
Sheridan’s Healthy Snack / Healthy Breakfast Program
2019-20 is our twelfth 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 crackers 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.
How can you Help?
Your family can help us by providing any of the following products: Unsweetened Apple Sauce (in single serve containers); Quaker Chewy Apple Fruit Crumble Bars, Individually Packed Cheerios, Boxes of Kellogg’s All Bran Bars (except chocolate/chocolate chip); Fruit Cocktail/Fruit Segments (in juice); Tuna Snack Kits (they sell these in packages of 6 at Costco); Please drop any donations off at the school office.
We also provide a bi-weekly Breakfast Cart to our students so that we can ensure all of our kids start off with enough energy to sustain them throughout the day! This breakfast can consist of a healthy protein, breads, fruits and vegetables. This program is also funded by a generous donation from HFFT. Extra supplementation would be greatly appreciated and can be done through donations to the school. Please contact Mrs. Matthews in the office for more information on how you can help.
We thank you for supporting this wonderful program!
