The Root Cellar has always been a key partner for our school nutrition program. With access to recent nutrition funding as provided by Alberta Education we have enabled the ability to expand our nutrition program to promote an open system where students can access meals or snacks without any issue. A new sliding style refrigerator is stocked with healthy food choices for the students to choose from. Dairy (cheese, yogurt, milk) grains (bagels, rice cakes, cereal) fruits and vegetables and a variety of lunch style items (wraps, sandwiches and soup). Dietary needs such as gluten free and Halal options are also available to students. The partnership with the Root Cellar has allowed the sourcing of the food items to be done at reasonable prices, which in turn allows us to provide food to students, while supporting our local partners.
