Salad Bar – Healthy Eating Program
During the school year, LTCES’s salad bar provides a weekly nutritious meal comprised of seasonal produce grown in the Lake Trail Community Middle School Garden and sourced from local farms, plus a protein, free of charge to Lake Trail students. Over the 2018 to 2019 school year, LTCES served 2298 salad lunches to Lake Trail students and staff.
The weekly salad bar program is managed by the Salad Bar Coordinator and delivered by a core group of dedicated volunteers. Salad bar is supplemented once a month by a partnership with Comox Rotary which sees Rotary volunteers preparing a healthy soup for students.

Sponsor a Salad Bar Month!
Barrier-free access to nutrition and food literacy is our priority. While many schools charge a nominal fee to cover expenses, Lake Trail’s salad bar remains free of charge.
LTCES is seeking ten sponsors throughout September 2019 to June 2020 to support a full month of salad bar ingredients at $500 p/month.
Your sponsorship ensures that LTCES’s can continue to offer the salad bar program free of charge.
