The Child Nutrition Council of Manitoba (CNCM) has a mission to address the issue of child poverty and food insecurity in Manitoba, as Manitoba has the highest rates of child poverty in Canada. CNCM is a charitable organization dedicated to helping school children learn, grow, and succeed by supporting breakfast, snack, and lunch programs. They are unique because they are based in Manitoba – all of the funds raised stay in this province, reaching children in all regions of Manitoba. CNCM funds almost 250 breakfast, snack, and lunch programs across Manitoba each year – this helps feed more than 29,000 children and adolescents by providing over 4.5 million meals and snacks across the province. CNCM is committed to complete transparency in utilizing their funding to benefit the children of Manitoba – over 92% of all funds raised through donations, sponsorship and grants is given directly to schools in Manitoba to provide meal programs.
As Food and Human Nutritional Sciences (FHNS) students and future health professionals, we recognize the importance of adequate child nutrition in Manitoba – this is why we have decided to team up with CNCM to support their program and initiatives, and we want to include our fellow students, staff, faculty, and community members.
