Mindful Munchies is back! The first delivery for our 2021/2022 school year is on September 13th, 2021.
The Mindful Munchies Program was started in 2017 as a way for students and youth in need to be given lunches during the school day. Lethbridge Food Bank hand makes fresh, healthy lunches weekly and sends them out for delivery through the wonderful volunteers at MyCityCare, a local organization that we partner with for this program. We provide a brown bag filled with nutritious items such as sandwiches/wraps, yogurt/cheese, fruit, grain products and other protein sources for each child. Families are connected to the program through our two school authorities, self-referrals, and referrals from other agencies.
Since its creation, Mindful Munchies has grown substantially and has delivered almost 58,000 lunches during the 2020/2021 school year alone and delivers to 28 schools and children’s programs around Lethbridge.
