Free Healthy Snack Packs Available Weekly

Community Partners Offer Free Snack Packs at Local Libraries Each Week
Posted on 05/06/2021

Foodland, the Tay Libraries, and Student Nutrition Ontario are working in partnership with the Karma Project to provide free, healthy snack packs to children, youth, and their families in Tay, to support the challenges of at-home learning, to ensure children can access healthy snacks each week, while in lockdown. Each Thursday, as curbside, snack packs will be available at all 3 Library branches in the municipality between 12 and closing hours (+Friday and Saturday, if supplies last). The snack packs will consist of Health Unit approved grab and go items, like yogurt, cheeses, and fruit. The Libraries aim to pair each week with an activity that can be done on the way to pick up the snacks, to encourage outdoor activities and walking.
