RRC Partners with Winnipeg Foundation to Nourish Young People’s Potential

March 4, 2013

Red River College has teamed with The Winnipeg Foundation and the Winnipeg Free Press on a new weekly feature aimed at helping kids develop healthy eating habits.

Every Wednesday, the Free Press’ Food section will include an easy-to-make snack recipe provided by RRC’s Culinary Arts program and developed with young people in mind.

The new “Recipe for Success” feature is a component of The Winnipeg Foundation’s Nourishing Potential initiative — a planned $5-million endowment fund to support child and youth nutrition programs.

To date, nearly $2 million has been raised and more than $360,000 in grants distributed to organizations providing after-school, drop-in, and summer food programs for children and youth.
