Our school relies on some excellent volunteer partnerships to provide tot breakfasts and lunches, and healthy snacks for students of our small rural school. Prior to this pandemic, vulnerable students would have access to many meals and the service was very well subscribed. My worry is that as more families are affected by job losses in our seasonal tourism based local economy, the need for these nutritious meals and snacks becomes even greater. In addition, when kids can't have basic needs met (food and shelter) it interferes with their ability to learn.

We will be providing hot breakfasts, lunches and healthy snacks to all students through the grant funding. In addition, we would provide some food and clothing items, such as winter clothes and footwear, to support our most vulnerable students/families.


This project is one of many received by The Vancouver Sun Children's Fund for our 2020/21 Adopt-a-School campaign.

Since the day our first Adopt-a-School news story was published in the fall of 2011, generous Vancouver Sun readers have helped us raise more than $6 million to improve the lives of B.C.’s neediest school children.

The money you donate helps teachers and school staff who are dealing with children suffering from the effects of poverty and enables them to provide breakfast or lunch, food at weekends, other necessities (like warm clothing) and educational experiences. We are grateful for your support, and for the opportunity to make a difference.

(100 per cent of donated funds are used for grants.  Admin & expenses are either supported by the Vancouver Sun newspaper or paid out of interest on investments.)
