To enhance the ability to learn by ensuring that each student attends school well nourished.
Each day, one in ten children arrive at school without breakfast or lunch to sustain them an entire school day in 2015/2016. Nutrition for Learning provides breakfast and lunch programs to children aged 5 through 18 years throughout the Region of Waterloo.
We are a community run organization with over 2,500 volunteers supporting the mission to enhance the ability to learn by ensuring that each student attends school well nourished.
Nutrition for Learning currently supports 154 community based breakfast, morning meal and lunch programs impacting over 18,000 children daily. Our dedicated volunteers coordinate student nutrition programs in elementary and secondary schools throughout Waterloo Region.
