S.N.A.C.K. Program

Supporting Nutrition for all Classes and Kids

Edmonton’s Food Bank provides nutritious food to numerous schools each week as part of our School S.N.A.C.K. Program. We are committed to providing a variety of healthy snack items for children including shelf stable milk. We target-purchase snacks that are found on Alberta Health Services’ single serving list in accordance with the Alberta Nutrition Guidelines for Children and Youth, such as low sodium and no sugar added choices.

After The Bell Program

In order to help address the important issue of child hunger in Edmonton, we have partnered with the Food Banks Canada program After the Bell. After the Bell is a partnership to help ensure snacks are available to vulnerable youth throughout the summer.

Food packs of nutritious, child-friendly food (fresh and shelf stable) will be distributed to children or families with children throughout July and August.
