Salad Bar

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.

Free Salad Bar lunches served last year


Many thanks for the Comox Valley Kin Club for their generous donation of $500, covering the cost of produce for a month of free salad bars for Lake Trail Community Middle School Students!

The Association of Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin clubs is proud to be an all-Canadian service organization made up of outstanding community volunteers. From coast to coast, members are enhancing quality of life in their communities by promoting service, fellowship, positive values and national pride. The Association boasts a proud 89-year history dedicated to fostering lifelong friendships while Serving the Community’s Greatest Needs.”

The Kin family has been a part of the Comox Valley since 1937.  

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.

Salad Bar Volunteers

Volunteers are at the heart of our healthy foods program. The salad bar team prepares ingredients on Tuesday afternoons and serves the salad bar at Wednesdays lunch. Email LTCMSCoordinator@sd71.bc.ca if you are interested in finding out more about this rewarding volunteer position.
