We would like to thank the Sutter Fund for providing our division with $10,000 for our school lunch programs. The division would also like to thank the generosity of Central Alberta for raising money to support this program at the annual Sutter Fund golf tournament.
The division is grateful for the Alberta Education school nutrition program grant that is currently being utilized by St. Gregory the Great Catholic School in Blackfalds, as well as St. Teresa of Avila School and St. Patrick’s Community School in Red Deer. However, this grant does not fill the need in all of our schools.
In addition, our local community partners do help fill in the gaps with their school breakfast and lunch programs. Now with $10,000, our division is able to extend the school lunch program further and support even more students.
