On November 14th, 2019, Farm to School visited J.H. Bruns Collegiate to view their veggie day delivery. This was their second year of fundraising. Both years, the school has had more bundles sold for donations than to be taken home by the students themselves. At J.H. Bruns Collegiate, they work to encourage healthy communities and giving back. The Farm to School MB fundraiser is just one of the ways they fulfill this goal!
Farm to School’s Program Coordinator was pleased to attend Nelson McIntyre’s veggie day delivery in October.
A special shout-out goes to the parent council and parent volunteers for organizing such a successful fundraiser. Even though Ecole Provencher had only one week scheduled for the fundraiser, they managed to raise $1,700.00.
For our last visit of the 2018 year, we had the pleasure of visiting Springfield Middle School in Oakbank. This school has had many Farm to School Manitoba fundraisers over the years, this year is no exception with raised funds of approximately $3600!
Farm to School Manitoba was in Blumenort to visit the fundraising coordinator and students from Blumenort Christian Preschool.
Our program coordinator had a great time visiting École South Pointe to see the action of their very first Farm to School Manitoba fundraiser. The school is raising funds to go towards the first phase of developing a brand new playground with play structures for their school. They were able to fundraise close to $4500!
As returning program participants, the parents and volunteers of École Howden were pros at putting together their vegetable bundles. Check out the progress from unloading the truck to the neatly arranged bundles below!
This is the first time that J.A. Cuddy School has participated in the Farm to School fundraiser. And from the sea of vegetable bundles, it looks like it was a success! The enthusiastic student council put together all the bundles efficiently while showing off some wacky hairstyles for their Spirit Week’s Crazy Hair Day.
Oak Park High School has participated in Farm to School for many years. For their current fundraiser, multiple groups of students are putting in efforts to help fund a few different initiatives, including a student trip to Kenya, a student trip to Europe and for the band program!
The Lockport Band Parents Association has been participating in the Farm to School fundraiser for the past six years to assist in covering expenses related to musical studies, annual music retreats and participation/attendance to festivals.
