Providing services in Regina schools and neighbourhoods for over 30 years
Regina Food for Learning (RFFL) is a non-profit that partners with the community to provide nourishing food to children in schools. We are the largest child feeding program in the city, providing services to Regina schools and neighbourhoods since 1988.
RFFL's nutrition program has supported thousands of school children across Regina in over 40 schools and community centres. Our program helps build community and support children to be engaged in school and in their lives.
All masking, vaccination and social distancing policies have been dropped by the province, however, our Board of Directors has made the decision to continue with masking and vaccination policies until the end of this school year. We will re-visit the policy in September during our school startup for 2022-23. We take the health and welfare of our staff, volunteers and community seriously which has prompted this decision. Many of the people who come into the Core Ritchie Neighbourhood Centre, our staff and volunteers included, fall into the high risk catagory. We work very hard to ensure everyone's safety at all times. We would appreciate anyone entering our space during our working hours, to please respect our decision to continue with masks.
