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.

Many thanks to Thu Robertson for her donation in support of free salad bars for Lake Trail Community Middle School Students for the month of March!

As an accomplished Lake Trail Junior Secondary 1994 graduate, we are fortunate to have Thu actively involved at Lake Trail Community Middle School today as the PAC Chair and as LTCES’s Treasurer. She is further involved in the community as the Treasurer for the Comox Valley Geek Society. Thu understands the importance of bringing food literacy into our schools and we thank her for the support!

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 and serves the salad bar on Wednesdays. Email foodcoordinator@ltces.ca if you are interested in finding out more about this rewarding volunteer position.
