Food for Thought - NorthMart Inuvik Sponsors Breakfast Program
The North West Company and NorthMart Inuvik are proud to sponsor the Sir Alexander Mackenzie Elementary School breakfast program – providing kids with a healthy and nutritious start to the day.
As part of our community commitment, The North West Company and NorthMart Inuvik will donate $5,000 in NorthMart Gift Cards to the school to help purchase nutritious breakfast food for the program.
The program, which is open to all students, provides meals to approximately 50 kids each and every day. Studies have shown that students who participate in school breakfast programs have improved attendance, better behaviour and higher achievement scores.
In addition to the $5,000 donation in NorthMart Gift Cards, staff from NorthMart Inuvik will also volunteer their time to help out the teacher volunteers in ensuring the breakfast program runs smoothly.
