Volunteer

"I feel privileged to be part of the Breakfast and Lunch club at Eastdale. It gives me great comfort to know that we are helping students who may be coming to our school hungry. A healthy meal in a warm, friendly, inclusive environment can make such a difference in a child's life. Being part of such a valuable program has been one of the highlights of my life!" - Maria Sotiriou, volunteer Eastdale

“Volunteering with Niagara Nutrition Partners is a natural fit for my passion of helping children and youth succeed after my experience as a retired educator followed by work with Early Years Niagara.
Supporting NNP enhances the optimal development and achievement of youth in Niagara. It is a give back to future citizens and promotes sustainability of a prosperous Niagara.” - Judy Reid

"FirstOntario empowers and supports their employees in bringing value to our local communities through our Blue Wave volunteer program.  FirstOntario is a strong supporter of the Student Nutrition Program and I have had the privilege of volunteering at the Port Weller School for three years. Interacting with the students and working with other dedicated volunteers has been an incredible experience for me.  Seeing first-hand the difference we can make in the lives of others is very rewarding and I am grateful to have the opportunity to support my community as a FirstOntario Blue Wave volunteer." - A Blue Wave volunteer at FO
