About Niagara Nutrition Partners

Niagara Nutrition Partners (NNP) is a not-for-profit program that was established in 1998 and is a Region-wide initiative that offers support and coordination for student nutrition programs in both elementary and secondary schools in addition to community based programs. Student Nutrition Programs are often referred to as breakfast clubs, however in many schools across Niagara these programs give children access to breakfast, snacks and even lunch throughout the day. There are currently more than 200 programs at 152 sites funded in part by the NNP. NNP is able to offer support to student nutrition programs through provincial grants and local fundraising efforts. NNP works together with site based volunteers to meet the needs of student nutrition programs in each of the twelve municipalities in Niagara.

NNP is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services (MCYS) and administered regionally by Haldimand-Norfolk R.E.A.C.H.
