March Nutrition Month

Alder Flats "Healthy Snacks" After-School Project

Through support from the Alberta Government's School Nutrition Program, the Alder Flats School Social Worker, Teri Boyce, is taking students through a series of after school events to introduce them how to make kid-friendly healthy snacks. She is talking to them about healthy food choices and portion control. Parents are invited to join! 

March Nutrition Month

Research shows that school food programs improve attendance and academic performance, and decrease tardiness.

In recognition of March Nutrition Month, we partnered with local grocery stores to distribute information on how you can help our local food programs.

 

To help food programs within Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools, you can:

  • Donate to the local food bank: 
    • Salvation Army at 5010 - 51 Avenue, Wetaskiwin. Ph: 780-352-2416
  • Donate to Hope Mission
  • Donate directly to a WRPS School
  • Volunteer at community agencies such as Hope Mission or Salvation Army
