Noelle’s Gift to Children has made a financial commitment of $111,000 to the VON’s Ontario Student Nutrition Program – Lambton (OSNP-Lambton) for 2024.

The funding will help purchase food for Lambton County’s 47 schools, helping to feed 10,100 students each school day, the VON said in a news release.

Noelle’s Git to Children representatives recently attended a thank-you event at Hanna Memorial School where students provided a song of gratitude for the financial support of food in schools.

 VON’s Ontario Student Nutrition Program (OSNP) receives annual funding from the Ministry of Community, Children and Social Services (MCCSS) to support a portion of program costs during the school year. OSNP-Lambton works with third party funders, local community partners, and schools to raise the remaining funds needed. 

“The Student Nutrition Program is a team effort and collectively we are making a significant impact in our community,” said Leslie Palimaka, VON OSNP-Lambton Community Development Coordinator.

“Noelle’s Gift to Children is a valued and vital community partner ensuring that students in Lambton are well nourished and ready to learn.”
