HFCRD Donating Nutrition Grant Funds to Local Food Banks

  Posted: May 6, 2020

The Holy Family Catholic Regional Division (HFCRD) is proud to announce that all remaining funds received through the Nutrition Grant are being donated to local food banks in every school community. These funds will ensure that families will have their nutrition needs met across the region. 

“HFCRD is proud to join all school divisions across the province in using our remaining Nutrition Grant funds to continue serving our students through existing programs in our communities. Since we can no longer use these Nutrition Grant funds in our schools, these community-based programs are best positioned to offer support through their existing infrastructure, volunteer networks and knowledge of the community,” said HFCRD Superintendent Betty Turpin.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, HFCRD used Nutrition Grant funds to provide breakfast or lunch programs in St. Stephen’s School in Valleyview, Holy Family School in Grimshaw and St. Andrew’s School in High Prairie. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the nutrition needs of students remain and we are committed to continuing to offer our support.

HFCRD is pleased to be providing funds to the following local organizations:

Peace River & Nampa

  • Salvation Army Peace River Food Bank
  • Peace River Community Soup Kitchen
  • Servant’s Heart Initiative
  • Nampa Community Services


  • Berwyn Ecumenical Society
  • Servant’s Heart Initiative


  • Manning Food Bank

High Prairie

  • High Prairie and District Food Bank


  • Valleyview Food Bank 


  • Supports provided through the school directly to families

HFCRD thanks our above community programs for providing these valuable supports to our communities. Together we are creating a better community for all families.
