Edmonds Community School is unique to Burnaby. Family Income in the neighbourhood is relatively low compared to other parts of the city. Many of the families here are new comers to Canada. English is a second language and households are concerned about food security.
Edmonds is asking The Vancouver Sun Children’s Fund Adopt-a-School program for $30,000 to cover breakfasts, healthy snacks, and spring and summer break food costs. These programs will not only feed children, but will foster a community of care and empowerment as parent volunteers and students learn from qualified community members on how to select and prepare healthy foods.
