A new breakfast program at Grassy Plains Elementary is going well, according to the school’s principal.
Heidi Grant says many students now get to start their day off with a full tummy.
“Between 25 and 30 any given morning,” she says. “And that is from a population of less than 90 students so between a quarter and a third of our students taken advantage of the program.”
Grants from the Breakfast Club of Canada and Rio Tinto Alcan help pay for the program.
The local food bank also donates to fill the holes.
