RFFL is Regina’s largest child feeding program, providing services in Regina schools and neighborhoods for over 29 years.
Message from the General Manager
Regina Food For Learning was founded in 1988 and served our first meals (breakfast) in April of 1989 at the Core Ritchie Neighbourhood Centre. In the many years since that time we have gone on to provide nutritional breakfasts, lunches and snacks in 35 schools and community centre locations. Volunteers serving on the Board of Directors, as consultants into better business practises and nutrition standards, in a fundraising capacity, as kitchen helpers and delivery personnel, as well as just taking some time out of their day to listen to the children that we provide for, ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF OUR ORGANIZATION. Volunteers have facilitated serving a total to December 31, 2016 of: 9,271 breakfasts, 527,910 lunches, and 1,808,591 snacks. In an effort to say thank you to our Founders and all of our many volunteers we will be hosting a Founding Members and Volunteer Appreciation Tea to honour those who make our work possible. We look forward to hearing stories from the past and planning forward to the future. We truly do understand the importance of the roles that volunteers play in our success and cannot say THANK YOU enough.
Lin Gennutt, General Manager

Thank You Volunteers!
Thank you very much to the volunteers that have become a part of our program. The dedication and commitment shown by this special group of people is remarkable. Your contribution to RFFL is greatly appreciated. We are always excited about new volunteers and would welcome any assistance you could offer. We are especially in need of a couple of volunteers to help out with snack preparation at Glen Elm School and Core Ritchie Nieghbourhood Centre. We are currently recruiting Members to sit on our Board of Directors. Thanks to everyone that helped out with the June and September hot dog sales. If you are willing and able to give of your time and energy, please contact the General Manager either through the comments section of this web site, email: firstname.lastname@example.org , www.facebook.com/reginafoodforlearning, Twitter: @RFFLyqr or call 306-565-8632.
