What schools are saying about the program

“I find the students, over the year, are more willing to try new fruits and vegetables. With lots of discussion about healthy eating in the class, they realize how important healthy food is to their bodies. Some children are choosing the fruits and vegetables over the more unhealthy snacks they are provided with from home. All the students are very appreciative of the food that is dropped off as a “surprise!”

 —Ms. Gray - Grade 1-2, Thornhill Primary, Terrace, BC

 

“Thank you for offering such an excellent program! Our ‘picky eater’ students are thoroughly enjoying the program and their curiosity was piqued as a result of sampling the various fruits & veggies that they would not have tried otherwise.”

 —Celina Mau, David Oppenheimer Elementary School, Vancouver, BC
