FOOD, OUTDOORS AND RECREATION FOR KIDS (FORKs)
Who? Children at Ryerson Community School
What? Starting September 2012 SCCC has been working with Ryerson Community School to support their nutrition program by offering breakfast at $0.25/day, a universal snack for $5/month and a nutritious lunch for only $3/day. Culturally diverse lunches are being catered by market 707 vendors.
Why? Well-nourished children perform better in school. Giving food to students who need it is one of the best ways to promote school success. Additionally, generally the health of our children is declining as a result of inappropriate food and lack of exercise. This is a holistic program that promotes healthy lifestyles from a young age.
When? Monday – Friday throughout the school year

MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
Who?  Children aged 6 - 12
What? The mentorship program is similar to a big-brother/big-sister program which pairs children with mentors from U of T’s Faculty of Medicine to meet weekly. Mentors will be chosen based on their common interests with the particular child. Activities, ranging from cooking to reading to trips to the Science Centre, will be tailored to the child’s needs and interests. Themes can include: nutrition, cultural appreciation, physical activity, literacy, creativity, goal setting, behaviour modelling and more. The program will have a thread of science running through it to help, in a fun way, to strengthen the child’s understanding of that subject.    
When? Saturdays from 12 – 2pm throughout the school year
