HFA Snack Sale at Arts Night

Almost a month in the making, the Grade 12 Food & Nutrition class’ snack sale was a huge success at the Celebration of Arts at Chisholm on Wednesday, May 29th.The culminating activity for the course required students to plan a food fundraiser for a large group to raise awareness of food insecurity in Canada. Students collaborated to source recipes, debate which charity organization to support, create budgets, promotional material, and learn about the nutritional status of people all over the country. The class collaboratively produced a variety of sweet and salty snacks for sale during the intermission between performances. Ms. Gilbert is very pleased to report that the class raised over $200 for Second Harvest, a local organization whose goal is to eliminate food waste and hunger in Canada.
