Rocky Mountain donates 1,000 lbs. of chocolate to Surrey Schools meal program

Rocky Mountain chocolate donation.jpgThe Surrey School District is getting a little sweeter thanks to a big (and we mean big!) donation from Rocky Mountain Chocolate.

The confectionery factory donated 1000 lbs. of chocolate to the Surrey School District for its school-based meal program, which provides meals to more than 2,100 students in need. The chocolate will be added to the nutritious meals as a sweet treat to celebrate upcoming holidays such as Easter, Passover, Vaisakhi and Ramadan.

The donation is part of a show of nationwide generosity from Rocky Mountain, which has given more than $500,000 of treats to frontline healthcare workers, charities, food banks, nursing homes and community groups in Canada.

The district's school-based meal program is currently operating as a "grab and go" meal program from nine sites across the district, with a combination of drive-through and in-person pick up. Social distancing and other infection control practices are closely followed to ensure the safety of students and staff. The program operates Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

While the district meal program is primarily funded by Community Link grants from the Ministry of Education, it is also supported by generous donations.

If you are interested in becoming a donor to support this initiative, please call 604-595-6066 or email donations@surreyschools.ca. A tax receipt will be provided for all donations of $25 or more.
