Halfway through its second year, the P.E.I. School Food Program is seeing big growth.
The non-profit group is serving 14 per cent more meals than it did at this time last year, and in its last ordering cycle received orders for 37,906 meals. That covers two weeks, and is a new record.
“We’re always excited to see growth and to see our meal numbers increasing. This means that more Island students are consuming a nutritious lunch, which is really what our organization is all about,” said executive director Katelyn MacLean.
