Impact Statement By getting involved in a breakfast program today you are helping children in Nova Scotia eat, enjoy, and value food that fuels healthier people and a healthier planet. Breakfast programs help kids in countless ways, including:

- Supporting social health by being a hang out spot for youth
- Improving behavior and participation in class
- Building leadership and work skills in kids by having them help run the program
- and so much more!

Become a part of this meaningful work and experience the reward of putting smiles on kids faces today.
Description Schools all over the province run amazing breakfast programs every school day. These programs rely on amazing people (like YOU!) to ensure that students have a healthy and delicious breakfast when they arrive at school. Tasks may range all the way from cutting veggies, to managing student volunteers, to serving kids - and everything in between!

Not available in the mornings but interested in helping out? There's a lot of Breakfast Program prep work that could happen on your own time - like purchasing groceries for example. Contact a school near you to discuss today.

These opportunities are all over the province. Visit nourishns.ca/volunteer-map to find an opportunity near you. No schools in your area on the map? We bet they'd love your help anyway! Some are just so busy they haven't yet found the time to put themselves on the map. Visit http://ns-schools.ednet.ns.ca/ for a directory of schools and give them a call.
