January 2019 - Thank you MAZON Canada for Supporting the 2018-2019 School Year!

A big thank you to MAZON Canada for their generous donation to our student nutrition program. Three schools in York Region were granted to receive this funding to support the nutritional needs of their students:

  • 160 students accessed snacks and/or breakfast, daily

  • 320 additional students accessed twice-weekly snack program

  • More than 5,760 snacks or breakfasts were served

The MAZON Canada funding for these three schools resulted in an increase in the number of students and selection of food available. It provided about one month of extra funding for the schools to achieve their objective to feed hungry students.
