Mandate:

Kids Eat Smart Foundation NL partners with schools, communities, volunteers and sponsors to set up and support nutritious food programs called Kids Eat Smart Clubs, organized by volunteers for school aged children throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. Our vision is that every school aged child in Newfoundland and Labrador attends school well-nourished to be ready to learn.

Target Population:

School-aged children and youth

Highlight of Programs / Services Offered:

  • 248 Kids Eat Smart Clubs operate in schools and community centres throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. Every school day with help of volunteers we serve over 25,000 meals to children and youth in Kindergarten to Grade 12. The majority of our KES Clubs serve breakfast consisting of nutritious foods, such as fruit, yogurt, toast, whole grain cereal and milk.
  • KES Clubs are volunteer run and are available to any child or youth who wishes to attend in a safe, welcoming and non-stigmatizing environment.
