September 9th, 2019 marked the start date of our third year for Mindful Munchies. We are serving 20 schools/agencies with approximately 1600 lunches a week.
Our goal is to ensure healthy food is provided to our children and youth to enhance their future success.
During the fall of 2017, The Lethbridge Food Bank, in partnership with My City Care, began the Mindful Munchies program, providing students in need nutritional food items to help students and youth succeed in the classroom. The program started with 11 schools and agencies and 600 lunches a week. However, within a few months, that number grew rapidly to now providing 20 schools/agencies with 1600 lunches weekly. ~51,000 lunches were distributed in 2018/2019 school year.
This program works towards preparing and delivering healthy lunch options to children and youth in need in our schools and other agencies. Our goal is to ensure healthy food is provided to our children and youth to enhance their future. Our program is intended to support and boost our children and youth’s success as well as investing in their emotional and physical well-being.
