Our Waubaskang Lunch Program ran from September 2021 to May 2022, and provided 2,988 lunches to students ages 7-15 on reserve.
As you can see from their feedback, all the students enjoyed having the lunch program be part of their learning experience at school. We believe all children and youth should have equal access to healthy, fun food to fuel their school day! One student shared, “I didn’t have to worry about food” and all students agreed that they want to participate in next year’s program.
The students in Wauabaksang gave a special thank-you to Ramona, the “Lunch Lady”, for all her hard work and commitment! One student shared a special note of thanks to Ramona saying, “Thank you, you make my dad’s job easier!” (pictured below)
Students were also asked in the survey, “Why is school so important to you?”, and they responded:
- Because of my Dreams
- Knowledge is Power
- To learn and to make new friends
- So I can go to college
The heart of our mission at SchoolBOX is simple, making education possible. We are thrilled that healthy lunches can help kids stay motivated and excited to keep learning.
