A collaboration of Nourish Nova Scotia & Dietitians Network of Nova Scotia + many volunteers
Nourish Nova Scotia feeds hungry kids. Norish Nova Scotia is the largest funder of breakfast programs in Nova Scotia and helped serve 4.4 million breakfasts in 366 Nova Scotia schools during the 2013-2014 school year. The primary function of breakfast programs is to provide nourishment to students. However, breakfast programs can also provide opportunities for nutrition education, leadership, and socialization that can build knowledge and skills, relationships and self-esteem. Breakfast programs encourage community, parental, and student engagement and foster a culture of caring and well-being within the school community.

The Dietitians Network of Nova Scotia (DNNS) are a non-profit, volunteer run association comprised of registered dietitians, dietetic interns and university nutrition students from across the province of Nova Scotia. We believe that food and good nutrition are some of the most important elements of health, and as a network we want to make access to up-to-date and credible nutrition information easier for Nova Scotians.
