Thank you to TC Energy for their generous donation to our Youth Nutrition Program
We would like to thank our community partner, TC Energy, and the TC Energy Foundation, for their generous donation of $5,000 in support of our Youth Nutrition Program, ensuring that healthy meals and snacks are provided to the youth that we support while offering ongoing mentorship with regard to choosing and maintaining a healthy and nutritious lifestyle!
Proper nutrition during adolescence is critical to support nurture development and growth. Poor nutrition during adolescence can have negative health impacts and can worsen conditions such as depression and substance abuse.
Youth experiencing homelessness and those at risk of experiencing homelessness within our community are susceptible to nutritional vulnerability. Failure to make more adequate food easily accessible for youth experiencing homelessness, will not only impact their health, but their social, psychological, and emotional well-being.
TC Energy is committed to supporting organizations that build strong and vibrant communities. With their support, we can continue to feed our vulnerable population and provide guidance about proper nutrition. Thank you TC Energy!
