Proper nutrition is every bit as important as innovative educational programs for every child’s learning success.
When good nutrition is coupled with a stable and safe environment, students shine. The Fuel for School program provides healthy breakfast for students who would otherwise start their day hungry. The CBE’s Fuel for School Program has helped hundreds of Calgary’s K-6 public education students have a better, more productive day; week; and even year, in school.
This program is not exclusive to any single area in Calgary, hunger affects schools and children in all communities. Most disturbing is the need for continued growth of the Fuel for School program in our city.
“This program is vital to our children. It’s an immediate, compassionate answer to a need.” attests Principal Judy Walker, Catherine Nichols Gunn School, “The students accessing Fuel for School are feeling more ready to start their day and accomplish more.”
“Starting the day in a calm, healthy way, eating breakfast together, sets a wonderful tone to the day.” confirms Principal Fran McGilvary, Connaught School.
Grant MacEwan School breakfast supervisor, Sheila Luscome loves knowing that she is providing nourishing food to hungry children each day, while helping to build both their emotional and social health.
Calgary schools need your support to keep this important program running for students.
