Student Nutrition and Food Support
Student Nutrition Programs
Healthy snacks and nutritious food play a vital role in the success of students at school and making sure this happens is a priority for us.
Over the past six plus years, FirstOntario has contributed almost $1.7 million dollars to date to student nutrition programs in all of our regions. Our Blue Wave volunteers have given hundreds of hours to help prepare and deliver these snacks to everyone who needs them at local elementary schools across our cities.
In 2019, we were able to help support more than 180 schools through six community partnerships across four different regions. Thank you to everyone who made all of this possible.
Food Agency Support
We believe giving our time and contributing donations. At the end of 2020, FirstOntario gave $50,000 directly to food banks across our regions to help make the holidays brighter. Consider making a non-perishable to monetary donation to your local food bank. When we do this together, we can make a difference.
