Grey Mountain Primary School - School Food Program

The school provides breakfast and lunch to any child that is hungry and a morning snack to all of the students.

This is what the coordinator at the school has to say:

“For the past few years I have been supervising the use of our YFFL funding and have had much to be grateful for. The funding in our school is used to purchase simple and nutritious foods to supplement meals sent from homes. Often children arrive at school hungry, either because there has been insufficient time for their breakfast at home, or because the food supplied there was inadequate. Children are guaranteed to find oatmeal, cheese, hard-boiled eggs, and/or fruit at school, setting a better tone for their day at school; happier outlooks and improved readiness to learn.

At lunch we offer rice bowls, macaroni, or instant soup, cheese, crackers, fruit, and sometimes meat. Students who have brought their own lunches are able to supplement healthy snacks from our stores to boost their lunches or to replace ‘sometimes’ foods they have brought.

Due to staff commitments and having no student kitchen, our meals need to be kept very simple. An emphasis on healthier choices for YFFL foods has the added benefit of transferring into classroom lessons and discussions about nutrition, and other healthy lifestyle choices.”

The funding that the school receives from Yukon Food for Learning Association is provided by Yukon Health and Social Services.

Also in the past, the school has received additional funding from the Grey Mountain School Council.

Thank you!
