CTV News Covers Schroeder Foundation Food Program at Dufferin School

Full Bellies and Beyond

As part of the Schroeder Foundation’s initiative to address food insecurity in the community, the students of Dufferin School in Winnipeg have been receiving free lunches every day since November. Our Food Bank Program has progressed as planned, has been successfully integrated into the lives of students, and aims to fulfill more than bellies alone.

The Schroeder Foundation is dedicated to helping people in the community. Ensuring every student has enough to eat, and is able to get through their day without worrying about an important meal – that is a step in the right direction.

Recently, CTV News Winnipeg interviewed Dufferin School Principal, Garth McAlpine, about the program. He had this to say:

“It alleviates a lot of the food security issues, where if the school has the opportunity to provide a healthy sandwich on a regular basis, some of the money that might have gone towards food for lunch … can be redirected elsewhere as it’s needed for them.”

Our program goes beyond the students, expanding to the community around them as well. The Schroeder Foundation is also paying lunch program staff additional income to come in early to prepare these lunches.
