The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation provided $750,000 in funding over a three-year commitment to E4C in support of their School Snack program.
E4C is a non-profit organization that moves vulnerable people toward positive, healthy and lasting change. It exists to limit, alleviate and ultimately eliminate poverty. For more than 45 years, E4C has been working to provide nutrition support to hungry children during their school day. To achieve this, the School Snack Program provides support to school staff and volunteers to help provide healthy food choices that meet the school's nutrition guidelines. E4C's School Snack program serves nearly 6,000 elementary children healthy snacks or breakfast in partnership with 26 Edmonton Public and Catholic Schools.
