Breakfast Program

Thanks to the very generous donations from Food and Friends, Westside Secondary School now has a breakfast program for those students who may not have the resources or opportunity to have breakfast before coming to school.  Students can now drop in to Student Services between 8:30am and 8:45am to grab a quick breakfast to jump-start their day.

We welcome donations from families and local businesses.  Please contact Nicole Leclair to arrange for a donation or to answer any questions.
