Hot Lunch Program News

Hot Lunch Program News

We’d like to let you know about some changes with the Fern Hot Lunch and Kindersnack Programs. Maggie, Ferncliff Daycare’s long-time employee and cook, has announced her retirement as of December 31, 2014. Maggie has been providing delicious and healthy meals for both the daycare children and Fern’s lunch program participants for many years. The food committee would like to thank Maggie for preparing food that students love to eat and for all her energy and hard work in helping us run a successful lunch program.

So, what happens in January 2015? The Fern Hot Lunch and Kindersnack Programs have been very successful and have grown substantially over the past four years. Rest assured, the program will continue and your child(ren) will be served a hot lunch the first day back to school. Beginning January 5, certified and trained Toronto District School Board nutrition staff will prepare lunches and kindersnacks in Fern’s kitchen for all participants. For full details, please read the attached Q&A factsheet.

Also, to help the food committee plan for this new arrangement, we’d like some feedback from the Fern community. In the next few weeks we will be posting a short survey about the lunch program. We would appreciate it if you could please take a few minutes to share your thoughts as we prepare for this transition.

Thanks,

Fern Food Committee
