Schoolchildren + apples = health
One in 3 (400,000) school-age children in Toronto go to school hungry. Poor nutrition impacts their classroom success, behaviour, outlook on life, and potential for the future.
Canadian Feed The Children (CFTC), a Canadian-based and operated non-for-profit, announces this year's launch of AppleCheck, which will put close to 5,000,000 fresh apples into the hands of 150,000 school kids in the 2005/06 academic year. CFTC works with partners such as the Daily Bread Food Bank, Second Harvest, the Toronto District School Board, and Stock Transportation to bring good nutrition to students who need it.
On Friday, September 2 at Nathan Phillips Square at Toronto's City Hall, a school bus full of apples will be on hand to distribute apples to passersby and donations to the programs will be accepted. Speakers will include:
All speakers, as well as spokespeople from Canadian Feed The Children will be on hand to discuss child nutrition and the AppleCheck program. For more information or to schedule an interview, contact:
