What is Mindful Munchies?
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 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 over 74,000 lunches during the 2021/2022 school year alone!
