All students at Terrace Road School have the opportunity to access basic needs such as breakfast, lunch, and healthy snacks throughout the day as required. As this is an identified need in our community, we endeavor to ensure all students are well fed and ready to learn.
There are a few different ways students are able to access each of these programs. Please see information below for specific information regarding each program.
Breakfast Program: Meals on Wheels
There are many benefits of beginning the day with a healthy breakfast. Eating breakfast in the morning is linked to improved concentration, increased energy, and improved academic performance.
Terrace Road School provides a morning Breakfast Club that is available to all students. All options are provided in partnership with Meals on Wheels for healthy food options. Our hardworking breakfast supervisor visits all classrooms each morning and students are able to request breakfast food at this time. Rotating available options include: fresh fruit/vegetables, cereal, muffins, eggs, yogurt, and cheese. Many of our students access this program regularly.
Lunch Program: BB4K
Our school lunch program is provided to students through the Brown Bagging for Calgary Kids Program. Students are provided with a Ham, Turkey, Tuna, Sandwich as well as vegetables or fruit. Gluten, Dairy Free, and Vegetarian options are also available upon request. Some of our students access this program regularly, while others use this program intermittently to supplement their school lunches. Students can request additional food at lunch hour through their lunchroom supervisor for intermittent use, however if families would like to access this program on a consistent basis it is recommended to email your child's teacher or the school administration team. This will help us to plan for the number of needed lunches as we receive twice weekly deliveries. You may also request this service directly from BB4K here. If your child is accessing HUB learning this year, there is additional support available through the same link.
As both of these programs are accessible for all students, please email the office if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's access, dietary concerns, or special considerations for your child/family.
Thank you as always for your ongoing support of our school and these programs that ensure all students are successful at school.
