Nourish Your Roots

What is Nourish Your Roots?

Nourish Your Roots is a healthy fundraiser to support food related health promotion activities in schools and not for profit childcare centres through the sale of fresh, healthy, sustainable, NS Foods. It connects children and families to Nova Scotia farmers. 100% of the purchase price of each sale stays in Nova Scotia, supporting the schools, local farmers and Nourish Your Roots.

How Does Nourish Your Roots Raise Money?

LMST is once again taking part in the Nourish your Roots healthy fundraiser to support healthy food programs and initiatives at our school. You can support our students and children by selling/buying boxes of fresh produce from Elmridge Farm.  Each farm box will be selling for $30 (we keep $9 for every box sold).

 

What’s In The Farm Box?

Each box will include 8-10 Nova Scotia grown items. Root vegetables figure prominently in the boxes, however there may be some fruit.

Fantastic! How Do We Get Started?

Order forms will be sent home during the second week of October.

Important Dates:

  • selling period is October 16-27, 2017
  • orders and money due to the school on Monday October 30, 2017
  • Our farm box/es pick up will take place on November 7, 2017 and further details of pick up times will be provided closer to that date.
