Posted on

We are pleased to announce that the Medicine Hat Catholic Board of Education has received $166,000 in grant funding from Alberta Education to continue the School Nutrition Program for the 2019-2020 school year.

The School Nutrition Program initiative was implemented by Alberta Education during the 2017/2018 school year. In June of 2019, the program was put on hold due to the uncertainty of funding in the upcoming 2019 Budget.Alberta Education has granted participating school jurisdictions funding to keep the program running through the 2019/2020 school year.

The Nutrition Program is currently being re-established at St. Louis, St. Francis Xavier, St. Michael's and Mother Teresa School for the remainder of the school year starting on Monday, November 18, 2019. The daily meals will continue to support healthy eating choices as per the Alberta Nutrition Guidelines for Children and Youth.

Meals provided at each school:

  • Mother Teresa School (breakfast)
