donation to breakfast program high school

The Breakfast Program at the Valemount Secondary School has received lots of support from the community, including a recent grant of $2,000 from Valemount’s Healthy Communities Committee, through Northern Health. Sherry Nicholas, Aboriginal Education Support Worker (left), and Jamie Mitnz (centre), Youth Worker, say the funding will go towards equipment like serving jugs for milk and utensils that will make the program easier to run. Hollie Blanchette, member of Northern Health’s local Healthy Communities Committee presents the cheque in the kitchen at the school, where every student at the school can get a free hot breakfast each morning.
