Most frequent questions and answers
Who does Food4Schools support?
Food4Schools supports current students in Nanaimo Ladysmith Public School who participate in school meals programs.
How do we access/register for Food4Schools?
Please contact your child’s school directly to let them know your child would like to participate in their school meals programs
What about summer?
Typically Food4Schools is offered during the school year, however, due to the impact COVID-19 is having on many families, we offered Food4Schools hampers during summer 2020. Weekly hampers were available for contact-less pick up at designated hub schools throughout the District.
What is in a hamper?
Free school meals programs vary by school and may include breakfast, lunch, snack, sit down, or grab & go options. Schools determine needs and number of students requiring support and tailor programs to meet the needs.
I am a community member or business, how can I support the program?
All donations ($20 and over will receive a tax receipt) are greatly appreciated and allow us to bulk purchase, shop case lot and stretch our food dollars. Want to host a fundraiser? Volunteer? Please contact us at email@example.com
