For 15 years, the Sault North Rotary Club has conducted its “Trip of the Month” fundraiser. From the draw’s proceeds, the club funds, among other initiatives, youth leadership development, psychological assessments for children and now has partnered with USW LU 2251 to match funding for the school breakfast program.

Algoma District School Board’s Chair Jennifer Sarlo and Director of Education Lucia Reece gratefully accepted the donation from Neil McLean, President, Rotary Club of Sault Ste Marie North and shared that this donation will go a long way to support the purchase of fresh fruit, milk, yogurt, cereals and other healthy options which are much needed by some students who arrive at school without breakfast or snacks for the day. Now more than ever, food programs are important for children and youth in our schools. The need for these programs continues to grow and the programs are being utilized by students in almost all ADSB elementary and secondary schools. Studies have shown that children whose nutritional needs are met have fewer attendance and discipline problems, and their ability to learn is enhanced.
