Nutrition for Learning supplies universal access to healthy food for students no matter what the reason, including breakfast clubs and "morning meal".

Brian Banks, Community Development at Nutrition for Learning, says the program builds a sense of community and allows schools to take care of one another.

"Only the students and the schools that are affected for those one days for the programs, and all the other days the programs are running smoothly. Unfortunately, we would love to be able to serve the kids that day, but unfortunately we can't."

Banks says Nutrition for Learning serves 23,000 students across the public, Catholic and French boards in the region.

He adds the program will resume when the job action is done, they will go in the following day and carry on the service.
