Programs That Contribute to

Academic Success

PHC provides a number of food-related programs that support the students of Gabriola Elementary School.

Hot Lunch Program

Every Wednesday, we provide a ‘pay what you can’ Hot Lunch at the elementary school. By providing nutritious meals, students’ learning ability and health is supported. Community and PAC volunteers and supporters are key to the success of this program.

Breakfast Program

Yogurt, fruit, and oat jars are provided in the elementary school for students who need a healthy breakfast to support their learning ability.

Emergency Snacks

and Lunches

With donations from Nester’s Food Market, we provide sandwiches, fruit, and cheese and crackers to stock the fridge at the elementary school. This is for any student who may need it and addresses hunger amongst early learners.

School Garden Program

During Spring and Fall, every class at the elementary school is invited to rotate through the PHC gardens located on The Commons property. Through hands-on activities, students learn about their food system and plant, tend, harvest, and eat food from the gardens. The students grow food that is used in the Hot Lunch Program and community programs.
