CFUW Children’s Nutrition Program

Through this volunteer group, CFUW members currently support Breakfast Programs at several St.Catharines schools both in the public and separate school boards – for example Harriet Tubman, Ferndale, Edith Cavell, St. Christopher and St. Theresa schools. In cooperation with Niagara Nutrition Partners and school staff our volunteers try to meet the needs of individual schools. Some prepare the food, some serve the food, all interact with the children to provide a warm, friendly, supportive breakfast experience. The Breakfast Programs may operate 7:30-9 a.m. each day from September to June. Volunteers commit to ONE DAY per week. Past volunteers were surprised how much they looked forward to seeing the children. They also noted that they left each day feeling energized.
