Eating and Tweeting in Cornwall

Today, another of our Agents of Change Ambassadors, Heba Kemal, a Grade 12 student from St. Lawrence Secondary School, in Cornwall held another Toonies for Tummies event.

Heba is the latest student in Ontario to bring attention to the importance of student nutrition programs among youth in the province.

The "eat and tweet event” saw grade 7 and 8 students take pics and post them during an extended breakfast which is being featured on the school’s Facebook and Twitter accounts using the hashtag #EatandTweetSLSS

Heba also gave a presentation to the students on nutrition.

A special thanks to Heba, her Principal Mr. Wheeler, and the staff at St. Lawrence School for their support of this event and for having many students at the school share their thoughts with The Grocery Foundation on the importance of student nutrition.

Our Agents of Change recently asked their school peers to share their thoughts on the importance of student nutrition. We have many powerful stories that we will be sharing with you in the days and weeks to come. We are very thankful to all of the students in Ontario, to our partners across the province of Ontario who have been helping engage students in this essential topic.

We are so very thankful to all of the volunteers, youth, educators and partners who rally behind #Toonies4Tummies. Together, we are feeding better futures!
