Eat, learn, succeed!

That’s what student nutrition programs in Northumberland County are all about.

Hi! My name is Beth Kolisnyk and I am the Community Development Coordinator for Northumberland Food for Thought.

Last year close to 6000 students in Northumberland County benefited from a breakfast, lunch, or snack program at school. These programs are open to all and promote healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime.

Looking for a way to help your local school community? Interested in spending time with a fantastic group of dedicated volunteers? Then contact me to find a school in your area!

By coming together with a common goal... we can make sure that students in Northumberland County receive the food they need to be ready to learn.

Get Involved

Student Nutrition Program volunteers and sponsors help students get the food they need to succeed in school.

You can also be a role model and help create a healthy nutrition environment for children and youth.  You can do this by enjoying a variety of foods from Canada’s Food Guide, focusing less on weight and diets, and praising individuals for making healthy food choices in a way that builds self-esteem.

Whether you’re a parent, teacher, business owner or a retiree, you play an important part in helping to make a difference in the lives of Northumberland County students every day.
