St. Andre Nutrition Program 
 
Jesus.jpg

And he said to them, “How many loaves have you?”
When they had found out, they said, “Five and two fish.”
Then he ordered them to get all the people to sit down in
groups on the green grass. So they sat down in groups of
hundreds and fifties.  Taking the five loaves and
two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the
loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before the people;
and he divided the two fish among them all.  And all ate and
were filled; and they took up twelve baskets full of broken pieces
and of the fish.  Those who had eaten the loaves numbered five
thousand men.  (Mark 6: 30)
 
Our Nutrition Program feeds 525 students each day and is an important component of your child's education at St. Andre.  Just like in the parable above, our program not only builds and strengthens the individual child through nourishment but also our entire school community.
 
Ms. Troini is the coodinator of our program and she prepares the morning snack for all of our students at St. Andre.  Here is a sampling of what she prepares for the program:
 
Fruit:  Apples, Oranges, Bananas, Pears, Plums;
Fruit Juice:  Apple or Orange
Vegetables: Carrots, Cucumbers, Fruitsations (Veggie)
Grains: Melba Toast,  Nutrigrain Bars, Granola Bars, Rice Krispie Squares, Arrow Root, Triscuit Crackers, Vegetable Crackers   
Dairy:  Milk, Yogurt Cheese
 
Although the program is subsidized through municipal and provincial grants as well as monies from the Angel Foundation of Learning, we are asking that all of our parents "donate" $40.00 per child to the school to help provide snack to all of our students for the rest of the school year.  When you divide your donation of  $40 over 180 school days, it equals to 22 Cents/Day to provide morning snack for the students in our school. 
 
Please do your part as part of our TEAM and contribute to our program.
 
Thank you!
