Blake's Nutrition Programs

At Blake we are very fortunate to have a comprehensive nutrition program to support our students. The TDSB remains firmly committed to nutrition programs, and more information can be found at TDSB Nutrition Programs. All of our menus meet the nutrition guidelines set out by the Ontario Ministry of Education's Policy/Program Memorandum No. 150 and Toronto Public Health

Breakfast Program - starts the week of September 9, 2019

Our breakfast program is provided in our gym every morning from 8:00 - 8:30 a.m. Students have a nutritious meal provided and served in conjunction with our partners from Bosley Real Estate's Danforth Branch. Each weekday two Bosley staff work in conjunction with our breakfast coordinator, Carla Devenish-White, welcome the students, and provide them with a delicious breakfast. Our menu is available here Breakfast Menu. Students should enter the breakfast program (with or without their caregivers) via the outside north doors of the gym - off Kiswick Street.

Morning Meal Program

Before morning recess each day, every class at Blake is provided with a morning meal. A morning meal always consists of a grain item, a protein item, and a fruit or vegetable. Adult volunteers help our coordinator, Donna Booth, prepare the meal, and student helpers deliver the meal to their own classrooms before 10 a.m. each day. Our coordinator also prepares or delivers a home made item (like hummus, samosas and muffins), twice a week. 

Volunteers to help prepare the morning meal are always welcome! Monetary donations to the Morning Meal Program are also always welcome - nutrition envelopes are sent home once or twice a year for contributions, and the minimum recommended contribution is $30 a year per child. Our first nutrition envelopes will go home in early November, and donations over $10 can be accompanied by paperwork to receive a tax receipt. Our nutrition program is partially funded by provincial and municipal nutrition grants, as well as a $10,000 grant from President's Choice Children's Charities
