The RCMP Foundation’s Nourish and Nurture Program works with the RCMP and community partners such as schools or community organizations to offer healthy living programs ensuring that students are provided knowledge, healthy meals & snacks and to embrace the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
As many students do not receive proper nutrition in the home, providing this in school helps improve student focus and ability to complete classroom tasks with more efficiency. Proper nutrition helps improve student moods so they can get more accomplished. It also introduces them to healthy food options at an early age, increasing the opportunity to live a healthy lifestyle.
From a crime prevention perspective healthy kids learn more effectively, turning potentially vulnerable youth into more productive youth. The program runs for the duration of a semester or school year and is complimented by visits from local RCMP officers.
