Sounds like the school is shutting down the program over the holidays. Sounds like our church may do a lunch program, while school is out.

Great news, our church has decided to host the children from the program for lunch and some indoor playtime over the holidays.

The church will also be hosting a turkey dinner for the children and there family's on Saturday December 23rd. Santa will make an appearance to hand out some gifts.

I was sad to find out that so many of these Children have never had a sit down turkey dinner at Christmas.

Christmas break program is going very well. No breakfast, but a full lunch program. Averaging about 35 kids a day. The church also has the gym open, so the kids can stay and play for the afternoon.

After three day of vaccinations: 704 flu shots, 512 Covid shots. Not big numbers, but every shot counts. My wife was hoping for 1000 of each, but we feel good with the people that showed up.

On Monday our dental program  will start. It was really sad to find out that many of these children have never seen a dentist. Starting Monday, we will have a retired dentist coming in to start what could be a long couple of months. Thanks to Shoppers Drug Mart for donating 300 tooth brushes, and toothpaste for this project.

Well the Breakfast/lunch program is running very smooth. We have a great group of volunteers, and some excellent teachers. Numbers are holding pretty steady at around 20-22 kids for breakfast and around 30-35 kids for lunch. The dental program has gone very well. Shoppers has donated another 200 brushes and toothpaste. Many the kids are now brushing after lunch which never happened before.

The grade 4 students have finished there waste management report. They capped the report at 750 households. Apparently, only 30% of those households compost. A four person family that composts, reported that they put out there garbage and recycling every two to three weeks. Households that don't compost reported that they put out there garbage and recycling every week.

For us, a family of two. We compost about 4L a week a week, and put out our garbage and recycling about every 5-6 weeks.

A lot of the households polled, did admit to adding construction materials into the garbage from time to time. Also, not breaking down cardboards boxes before recycling them.

Most households said they would compost if there was more drop off areas in there neighborhood and the city supplied them with a container.
