Neruda Supports Nutrition for Learning

Neruda Supports Nutrition for Learning

In 2012 we have started a campaign to donate 10% of all our ticket sales to worthy causes improving the lives and well-being of people living in our region. 

The first organization we’re working with in 2012 is Nutrition for Learning.

Nutrition for Learning, a registered charitable organization since 1997, supports community based nutrition programs committed to improving the learning capacity, health and well-being of children and youth in Waterloo Region.  Research has proven that students coming to school hungry don’t perform well in the classroom, have difficulty concentrating, display behavioural problems, are less alert and are often lethargic.  Our programs impact the physical, cognitive, behavioural and academic needs of children and youth in Waterloo Region.

Nutrition for Learning currently supports over 130 community based breakfast, morning meal and lunch programs impacting approximately 9,000 children daily.  Over 600 dedicated volunteers coordinate student nutrition programs in elementary and secondary schools throughout Waterloo Region.
