NourishYourRootsVeg

This year our school was fortunate to be selected by Nourish Nova Scotia ( https://nourishns.ca ) to participate in the Nourish Your Roots fundraising program.

Through this program funds are raised to support food related health promotion activities in schools and not for profit childcare centres through the sale of fresh, healthy, sustainable, NS Foods. Each $30 farm box sold connects children and families to Nova Scotia farmers. 100% of the purchase price of each sale stays in Nova Scotia, with $8 from each box remaining with our school and the rest supporting local farmers and Nourish NS programming.
 
The sale runs from November 15th to 25th. By now your LMST student should have come home with an order envelope (and copies of receipts to give to customers) – this should be returned to the school on or before November 25th.  Farm boxes may be picked up in the playground behind LMST on December 7th from 2:30 pm to 6:oo pm.
