Ruth Hooker School Breakfast Program

Program Impact

During breakfast we form a close bond with the students.  They not only get a nutritious breakfast but they are learning good manners and we teach about food groups and how important these things are to their diet. 

Our school is in a low socio-economic area and the teachers have always felt that students were coming to school hungry.  After surveying teachers they reported a difference in students’ behaviour and ability to concentrate. 

Currently our students are becoming more involved in menu planning- serving others and clean up. This gives them a sense of pride and connection to the school.
