Evergreen principal Shannon Creedon Bailey's optimistic about a new pilot project.
"Wouldn't it be great, if we had the opportunity to offer all students a healthy lunch, during their kindergarten years," she said.
The Kenora school also offers a breakfast and snack program.
"We feed any student - regardless of demographic need -- whatever -- because we offer healthy food choices. If they eat it, there's no negative results," added Creedon Bailey.
The new lunch program will be focused on helping about 50 young minds in kindergarten. Staff are hoping to track the impact on students through their attendance. In addition, the school's interested in any changes to the interaction between staff and parents, as well as between students, who are a part of the program.
"These are the years where we're working to fill the backpacks with learning skills, social skills, self-regulation and academic learning. Wouldn't it be great if we had the opportunity to offer all the students a healthy lunch, during their kindergarten years," the principal noted.
