Thank Educators by Donating to Food for Kids this Holiday Season

 

December 15, 2017 – Online Donations for Breakfast Programs, a Perfect Holiday Gift for Teachers

Looking for an extra special way to celebrate your child’s teachers this holiday season?  Make an easy, online donation to Food for Kids at www.FoodforKidsPtbo.ca to support your school’s breakfast club.

Teacher’s note that well-nourished children are better able to concentrate and learn and often show better behaviour and attitudes when nutrition programs are offered.  Thank a teacher by helping kids start their school day with healthy food!  “Giving to your local breakfast programs this holiday season in lieu of gifts is a great way to make a positive difference in Peterborough City and County – it’s a gift that gives more!” said Luisa Magalhaes, Registered Dietitian.  “Donations are the backbone of Food for Kids’ student nutrition programs across the city and county, so we’re inviting families and community members to make a donation online that recognizes someone special while helping our students be well-nourished and ready to learn.”  Food for Kids Peterborough and County is a non-profit community partnership that has supported breakfast programs in local schools for 25 years.

Donations made to Food for Kids can be directed to specific school programs.  Online donors are able to personalize an e-card for the honored educator.  To make a donation, visit www.FoodforKidsPtbo.ca, click on “Donate Now”, select “Food for Kids” and note the school in the comment box.  Tax receipts are available.

In the 2016/2017 school year, 15,902 students had access to breakfast programs in 48 schools throughout Peterborough City and County.
