Nutrition Pilot ProgramFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

High Prairie, Alberta – High Prairie School Division is very pleased that the Alberta Government has continued to fund the school nutrition project. The Government of Alberta made an announcement on April 5th on its plan to expand the program to all school jurisdictions in the province. Our division was 1 of 14 jurisdictions that piloted the project this school year and it has been very well-received by our schools and students. École Routhier School and High Prairie Elementary School partnered with local grocers to provide lunches for over 200 students per day and another 100+ snacks per day. Freson Bros. in High Prairie and New Horizon Co-op in Falher have been instrumental in this program’s success. Thank you to both of our local grocers and to the Government of Alberta for making this nutrition project a reality. We look forward to continuing with the nutrition pilot project in our division.
