The Rotary Club of North Bay is supporting breakfast and nutrition programs at five schools at the Near North District School Board (NNDSB). 

The $1,800 donation was used to purchase food items for breakfast and nutrition programs, specifically for special education students. 

Sixty students will benefit from the donation that will supplement the breakfast programs into the new school year. 

“The Rotary Club of North Bay is pleased to provide support for the Special Education Breakfast/Nutritional Programs with the Near North District School Board here in North Bay,” says Don Coutts, a club member. 

The NNDSB breakfast and nutrition programs allow students to choose a variety of healthy foods each day while at school.

One of the schools that received a food donation from the Rotary Club of North Bay was Woodland Public School.

“On behalf of our Woodland Public School community, we express our sincere appreciation to the Rotary Club for the generous donation of food items. This year, our Woodland Public School family has felt especially connected to the work of our local Rotarians as they’ve shown particular care for our in-person learners with special needs, and beyond this, they’ve named a graduating student from our school as the Rotary Student Ambassador, “ says Principal Amanda Meighan.
