The school operates a breakfast and snack program. The funding that the school receives from Yukon Food for Learning Association is provided by Yukon Health and Social Services and Global Change for Children.

About 30 students have breakfast every morning and on average 20 students are provided with snacks. In addition to the direct funding that the school receives from YFFLA, the school is assisted by the Nacho Nyak Dun First Nation. They manage the reporting and paper work for the program and an employee to coordinate the program in the school.

In a school newsletter, the school thanked the Mayo Big Way store it’s donations of fruit, yogurts, & juices to the JV Clark School food program. The newsletter also said “The healthy food program continues. Fresh fruit and other staples have been made available to all students at morning break and lunch. The fruit and snack program will continue throughout the winter.”
