The new recycling fee added to milk purchases, has created a huge impact on our budget. If you would like to help us out with recouping some of the recycle fees, we have now set up an account with Stop, Drop and Go at SARCAN. You can drop off milk containers, or any other recycling at SARCAN's drop centres. All you need to do is enter our user name: 306-565-8632 (our phone number), and the drop off code: rffl (all small letters). Please note this is a new user name and drop off code. Enter the number of bags you have and the machine will print out the appropriate number of stickers. Put the stickers on your bags and leave them on the conveyer. Very easy. The recycling refund will go directly to Regina Food For Learning. This will make a significant contribution to our ability to continue supplying quality products to our programs. Thank you for your support.
Welcome New Schools
We are pleased to welcome three new schools to our program! Beginning in mid-October, Wilfred Hunt School now receives a breakfast and a snack for eight students. In November, Ruth Pawson and W.H. Ford schools will also be joining us. We will be providing Ruth Pawson School with breakfast for nine children, and W.H. Ford School will receive two snacks per day for 16 students. All three schools will participate 5 days a week and will also incorporate it into their curriculum, learning food prep and clean-up skills. Welcome aboard Wilfred Hunt, Ruth Pawson, and W.H. Ford!
Happy Back to School!
It’s that time again - time to get organized and back into a routine. The new school year is a great time to start fresh and create healthy habits. With the kids back in school, this is our chance to help guide healthy eating habits through our meal programs.
Regina Food for Learning is gearing up for the new school year with our nutrition program starting on September 10th. Erica Nimmo and Dorothy Payne are working hard to get organized and put together meal ideas for our schools. We also welcome back our volunteers who play an important role in preparing meals and helping out where needed.
As the newest employee of Regina Food for Learning, I can appreciate that back-to-school feeling, with new people, new learning opportunities and challenges. I’m taking what I’ve learned from my past experiences researching and volunteering with food security organizations and school food gardens, and applying them to this new experience.
Welcome to Our New GM
We are thrilled to announce that Danielle Humble-Selinger has been appointed the new GM to replace Lin. Danielle comes to us from Regina Public Library where she worked at securing donations for library programs. Her passion is food security and she’s volunteered with organizations and groups involved in advocating for healthy eating in schools and school food garden projects. When she’s not working, she enjoys camping and spending time outdoors with her family. She’s excited to start working with Regina Food for Learning and meeting everyone involved in the program. She’s looking forward to being a part of this great organization and helping to continue the great work that RFFL does! We think Danielle will be a wonderful addition to RFFL.
