Locations we serve
Balfour Tutorial (Shirley Schneider Support Centre)
We provide lunches for 100 teen parents each Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The menus are done by Food for Learning but the students do the actual food preparation for their own program. The Balfour Tutorial students are pregnant and parenting teens continuing their high school education. We are very proud of this program because the girls not only get the much needed nutrition, but also the experience of preparing nutritious lunches. We also purchase extra milk so that some students will be able to take home two litres of milk on Fridays for their babies. In 2016, 9,300 lunches were served.
Judge Bryant School
We provide 10 breakfasts and 15 lunches daily. The menus and food are picked up by school staff who oversee the preparation and distribution of the meals. In 2016 we served 1,480 breakfasts and 2,220 lunches.
Dr. George Ferguson School
We provide a universal snack two days a week for Dr. George Ferguson School students. The food pick up and preparation is done by school staff and students. We are feeding 315 students each Wednesday and Thursday morning. In 2016 we served 22,620 snacks.
Glen Elm Community School
We provide a universal snack program at Glen Elm Community School for pre-kindergarten through grade 8. We are feeding approximately 325 students each school day morning. The food preparation is done on site by a part time Regina Food For Learning Cook. In 2016, 45,408 snacks were served.
Campus Regina Public - Victoria Campus
Starting in 2003 we began serving high school students in several different alternative programs. The Victoria Campus programs we have served the past 13 years are now all housed at Campus Regina Public (formerly Cochrane High School). We provide 50 lunches daily. In 2016, we served 8,280 lunches.
High School Engagement Re-Entry Program (H.E.R.E.)
Starting in 2016, we began serving a universal lunch at H.E.R.E. This is a program that has been developed by Regina Public Schools to re-engage students in grade 9 who have had little or no attendance. We provide 30 lunches three times per week. In 2016 we served 2,330 lunches.
Martin Collegiate's Aboriginal Advocacy
Martin Collegiate's Grandma Bear (Elder Joyce Bear) began a beading class with some of Martin's at-risk students. She saw a need to feed these students and began supplying food from her own purse. The program grew, thanks to Grandma Bear's kindness and wisdom, to a point that she could no longer sustain feeding the students herself, so students began bringing food from home for a pot luck. A proposal was made to RFFL and we accepted Grandma Bear's Bead and Feed as one our programs. The Aboriginal Advocacy continues to grow, and we currently offer a universal lunch once a month to 35 students. In 2016 we served 290 hot lunches.
Core Ritchie Neighbourhood Centre
In September 2014, we began serving an after school snack program at Core Ritchie. We currently serve 40 students 5 times per week. In 2016 we served 6,320 snacks.
Thom Collegiate Student Support Services
In May 2016, we began serving 25 snacks daily to the two Student Support Services areas of Thom Collegiate. A need had been expressed that students are arriving at school hungry. The staff of the Student Support Services felt this is one problem students face that can be easily addressed, and expressed their need to Regina Food For Learning. The program has been a huge success. In 2016 we served 2,725 snacks.
