To date, RFFL has provided over 2.8 million lunches, breakfasts, and snacks!
In the 2022-23 school year, we provided 103,658 snacks, 26,862 lunches, and 9,236 breakfasts to 948 students in 14 schools. We are very proud of the quantity and quality of food we provide to hungry students.
According to the Univerity of Regina’s Saskatchewan Child and Family Poverty Report 2021, child poverty is a reality. The statistics are staggering.
In Regina, 45% of Food Bank users are Children! From the review of Children’s Health and Behaviour by Pediatrics and Child Health, the results of food insecurity show:
Children deemed food insecure at kindergarten experience impaired performance in math, reading, and social function. Hungry children are more likely to display behaviours, be absent, or be late for school. Students learn best when they are well-nourished. Experiencing hunger impairs children’s memory recall, and math scores and they are more likely to have behavioural, emotional, and academic problems. It can affect their development and learn through compromised dietary quality or quantity, psychological or emotional stressors, and adverse effects on school engagement.
Good nutrition is the foundation for a healthy life. Our nutrition program helps improve:
These positive outcomes provide students with an opportunity to thrive in school and our community.
