What We Offer

NUTRITION PROGRAM

We provide breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack to an average of 350 children per meal, per day.

Breakfast is served five times a week, consisting of largely cereal and milk.  Thursday, which is early dismissal, we serve fresh muffins and yogurt. 

Through foundations like President's Choice Children's Charity our breakfast program continues to provide students with the most important meal of the day, breakfast. We are grateful to be a recipient of the PCCC Breakfast grant for the 2019-2020 school year! 

A large part of our breakfast funding is possible from the generous donations from organizations of cereal boxes. We ask that if your organization would like to donate cereal for our breakfast program, please avoid collection of cereals that are high in sugar and/or containing nuts. 

In addition to our breakfast program, our Smoothie Bar available where students can build their own Smoothie with ingredients such as; frozen berries, bananas, yogurt and spinach.

The Lunch program at Ben Calf Robe offers nutritious meals for students four days a week. Throughout the week, lunch meals are planned to provide students with a balance of foods from Canada's Food Guide.
