Salad Bar

Salad Bar – Healthy Eating Program

Lake Trail Community Education Society is a dynamic charitable organization which works in close relationship with Lake Trail Community School to foster a community school model. Barrier-free access to nutrition and food literacy remains a top priority for LTCES.

One of our key programs, and a weekly highlight for Lake Trail students, is our weekly salad bar. Over the 2019 to 2020 school year, LTCES served 4745 free lunches through our salad bar and bagged lunch program! 

Another piece of our Healthy Foods Program is offering a snack to youth and families participating in LTCES programs. These healthy snacks support young people in gaining extra nutrition as well as staying alert and energetic during activities.

Exciting food literacy, food security, and education momentum lays ahead with the build of the new Lake Trail Community School Garden and Outdoor Hub (more on that coming soon!), the evolution of our Healthy Foods Sponsorship Program, AND the hiring of a new part-time Healthy Foods Coordinator.
