Food for Thought

By Annika Voltan Halifax, Nova Scotia
Zero Hunger

The Food For Thought program ensured students received daily meals throughout the pandemic while also supporting local businesses. By late March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic forced all schools in Nova Scotia to close, leaving thousands of students without access to their school’s breakfast program. Vulnerable students were given credits for lunches and set up to order meals from local restaurants through an online ordering system called “Click2Order” based in Cape Breton. This program was the first of its kind in the province and over 35,000 meals were distributed by a large network of volunteers between early April and the end of June to several communities across the province. It is an example of true collaboration between the provincial government, schools, community organizations, businesses and local residents.
