Jen from Ninjamommers interviewed Shannon, a student from Bracebridge Muskoka Lakes Secondary School, in preparation for Shannon's trip to Toronto on February 8th to speak at the Grocery Foundation's first ever Agents of Change summit.
Shannon explained to Jen that, “Lots of kids don’t have proper food at home. To be fully present at school, students can’t be sitting there feeling sick because they’re so hungry. It impacts their learning and the way they approach school.”
She wants to see student nutritional programs improve, and she'd like to see more students get involved by preparing the meals for those who need a good healthy meal.
We can't wait to hear Shannon's full presentation at the summit. In the meantime, read her interview with Jen here.
