COVID-19 INFORMATION: A Message to our School Nutrition Grant Recipients

In these unprecedented times, we trust you are taking measures to protect yourself and your loved ones. Like you, our priority has always been ensuring that our most vulnerable children can attend school well-fed and ready to learn. For hungry children, the next few weeks will be critical. Now more than ever, we are here to help you to continue to serve these children during school closures.

For that reason, we want to give you the flexibility to use the remainder of your School Nutrition Grant to serve your students in a way that works best for your community, like providing grab and go snacks, supporting community led initiatives to provide emergency food, or by giving out gift cards for struggling families. You know which of your children are at risk for hunger – do what’s right for them.

2019-20 Final Report

You will receive your email containing the link to file your final report April 1st as usual, however we are lifting the deadline for submissions. As you can imagine, continuing to fundraise may become a challenge for us, so we’re asking for your help by providing the details of your unused funding in your final report under “Surplus Funding”. We will take this into consideration when determining your School Nutrition Grant amount for the 2020-21 school year.

2020-21 Application Process

The application period for the 2020-21 school year is now open, and currently there is no deadline to apply. We will continue to monitor the situation and place an update on our website at least two weeks in advance of a deadline being imposed.

  • Applications submitted before May 30th will be notified as usual by June 15th.

  • Applications submitted after May 30th will be reviewed and notified monthly.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our team at pccharity@loblaw.ca

Please take care of yourself and your loved ones.

Sincerely,

Lisa Battistelli Executive Director, President’s Choice Children’s Charity
