Evan Hardy Collegiate is diverse community. However, there are some students who can not afford to bring lunch are often bullied, segregated and isolated in the very place of learning. The students feel ashamed and as a result have increased anxiety levels, poor academic performance and are often anti-social. Unfortunately, this has been a tragic reality for many students at Evan Hardy Collegiate. Hi, I am a grade 12 student at Evan Hardy Collegiate. This year, I transferred from another Collegiate. I was shocked to see no nutritional program like the one at the previous school. I spoke with the principal about starting up a nutritional program for all students. She informed me that the school currently housed a Lunch program for students who can not afford to bring Lunch. However, I wondered whether other students were aware of this program. That is when I decided to expand this program to reach out to more students. I connected with the CHEP organization, and it is decided that the Lunches for students in the lunch program will be provided. However, I am still striving to start the morning nutrition program that will include fruits for all students at Evan Hardy Collegiate. CHEp can not support this program as they do not have enough funds, but I am determined to do so. I strongly believe that by providing morning snacks to all students, and expanding the lunch program, the school will see a high academic performance in all the students. The students will be more socially engaged. This is evident in the lunch program that I have currently expanded. This program is a great way to know other students, as all the students participating in this program make their own lunches. As the pictures show, students not only become socially active, they also learn to respect and accept each other. They learn to share and elevate their self esteem and confidence. Together with the principal, we are planing to expand this program to a morning nutrition program for students who can not afford breakfast. "Food 4 Empowerment" is a program where students learn to accept each other. It is a place where students learn to share, become kind and above all, become socially active and strong.
