School Nutrition Program

We are a team of volunteers from several local churches, as well as community nursing students, and the community at large, who currently serve nutritious snacks daily to three local schools within the Hamilton Wentworth School District. This, all under the umbrella organization of "Tastebud's" a student nutrition collaborative in Hamilton.

The Creek Community Church manages the purchasing of food, the organization of volunteers, and the monthly online reporting for the schools. 

Relationship building has been key with staff and students alike, as we serve within the school system. One principal commented: "Without our volunteers, the school simply would not have a program." 

Each person is assigned to a team, once a week for 1-2 hours at a designated school under our care. Duties for the team vary, from cleaning/cutting the fruit/vegetables for delivery to the students, or to serving the actual students as they arrive at their "snack station." 

If you: 
  • Are a humble, positive, role model
  • Are a dedicated volunteer
  • Would like to serve the needs of students in Hamilton's schools.... then we would love to hear from you!
