It’s back to school time in Nova Scotia, and for many children that means a return to healthy breakfasts, lunches, and snacks, available through their school’s nutrition program.

This year, Atlantic Superstore­s throughout the Annapolis Valley, along with Your Independen­t Grocer locations, are taking part in the Get To Give Day drive, a new initiative in support of the President’s Choice Children’s Charity, the largest non-government provider of in-school meal programs in the country.

In Nova Scotia, more than 30 programs will reach 10,000 students.

On Sept. 7, for every purchase made in-store or through PC Express at any participat­ing Loblaws store, $1

President’s will be donated to the Choice Children’s Charity, with a goal of $2 million, and 100 per cent of the funds raised will go to help feed children in schools across Canada.

“We are grateful to our founding partner Loblaws and its customers for their support,” said Lisa Battistell­i, the executive director of the President’s Choice Children’s Charity.

“We know that children experienci­ng hunger miss more school, find it difficult to concentrat­e and experience higher levels of anxiety. This donation will help us fuel even more Canadian students and remove hunger as a barrier to learning.”

In addition to Loblaws’ Get to Give Day on Sept. 7, Atlantic Superstore customers can support President’s Choice Children’s Charity throughout the year by donating when instore or by donating PC Optimum points at PCOptimum. ca.
