A Child Nutrition Champion
Breakfast for Learning’s Saskatchewan Coordinator Kelly Berlinic was recently awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal to honor her contributions and achievements to Canada through her involvement with Breakfast for Learning.
Kelly is a true child nutrition champion and Breakfast for Learning is honored to celebrate her achievements and continued efforts to ensure children attend school well nourished and ready to learn.
Breakfast for Learning Volunteer Award for Leadership and Inspiration
Each year, Breakfast for Learning celebrates amazing nutrition program volunteers who have had a tremendous impact in the area of child nutrition.
Dorothy Ross and Sylvia Woodward are two child nutrition champions who have shown a long-standing commitment to the nutrition program at Pleasant Hill Community School in Saskatoon. For the past 28 years Dorothy managed the breakfast program at the elementary school, serving 50 students a healthy breakfast each day of the school week, and Sylvia has just retired after spending 17 years as the nutrition worker for the lunch program, nourishing 150 students each day.
More than just feeding hungry children, they have both made a special effort to ensure maximum nutritional value in the foods they served and always strive to include traditional foods in the menu. Their shared passion and dedication to child nutrition has had a strong impact for generations of students and Breakfast for Learning is proud to call them members of our community.
