There was a demand in the community for youth nutrition. Youth would come to BNC drop-in hungry and in need of proper nutrition throughout the school day. With the help of our kitchen staff, the youth assist in preparing their lunch for school the next day.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the lunches would wrapped and delivered straight to the neighbouring schools that serve our youth. Now in an effort to reduce waste and provide a more convenient alternative, the lunches are distributed to the youth after program is done for them to bring home and supplement as needed. A typical lunch includes a pieces of fruit, veggies, granola bars, pudding/fruit salad, juice-boxes and a sandwich or wrap. This guarantees that no child will have to go without a lunch for school, allowing them to focus during class with a full stomach.
