food for learning


Food for Learning provides food to over 10,000 local children each school year, in the form of a balanced breakfast, healthy snack or nutritious lunch. Schools within the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board; the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board; Conseil des Ecoles Publiques de l'Est de l'Ontario; and the Quinte Mohawk School are offering student nutrition programs daily.

Food for Learning is a source of administrative, financial
and organizational support for schools offering student nutrition programs. Food for Learning, the education sector and the community at large are working together to meet our goal of providing food to all children who are in need of a supplement to their daily nutritional intake, whether it is one day of the school year or every day.

You could help impact the daily lives of children and youth by ensuring that they have the nourishment they need to learn and succeed. Schools throughout Hastings and Prince Edward counties NEED volunteers to help them with their breakfast programs! Volunteers are need to deliver groceries, prepare and serve food to children, assist with program logistics and so much more!

Food for Learning had a very busy year feeding OVER 1 MILLION meals and snacks to local students! This would not have been possible without dedication of volunteers, donors and supporters.

On behalf of the Food for Learning Steering Committee and The Hastings and Prince Edward Learning Foundation, THANK YOU!!!



Food for Learning's 2015 Feed the Meter Campaign raised a grand total of $29,163.20!

A big thank you to all of those who supported the 7th Feed the Meter Campaign. Feed the Meter would not have been possible without the support of the many campaign sponsors and the support of the Mayors, Councils and DBIAs of Belleville, Quinte West and Prince Edward County.


Food for Learning programs throughout Hastings and Prince Edward Counties will use these additional funds to purchase food! All funds raised in a specific community will be shared among the schools in that community. Thank you for your generous support! A special thank  you to all of our sponsors, the community and each municipality.



Food for Learning primarily provides funding for student nutrition programs (breakfast, lunch, snack), however, we recognize that there are many other food related activities that occur during the school year, each benefiting students by providing nutrition. 

Food for Learning will now accept applications for funding to support projects/events hosted by local schools. 

The focus of this funding is to explore innovative projects/events/activities that promote the mission of Food for Learning and will provide nutrition to students in an effort to enhance learning.
