for participating in the
PC® BBQTown Event!
My community is the kids of Victoria, BC. The most exciting prize for me in this contest is the chance to win some funding for nutritional programs. My community is two inner city schools in Victoria. One, my kids attend and the other I work at. The financial need is great in both schools. Both schools have a simple breakfast for the kids served by community volunteers, a hot lunch and we used to have after school snacks. The cost of food has escalated to the point that we have had to slim down the food provided at both schools and seek community funding. Parents are finding that money is so tight that they are no longer able to pay a little portion of the lunch. Nothing is wasted- any extras go home with needy families each night. If my special schools were to win this amazing donation I'd split it between the two schools and our awesome kids! Nothing replaces a full belly if you're trying to learn. Once the kids bellies are full everyday, what an awesome thing to be able to entertain them with a once in a lifetime bbq with the music of Hedley. Wouldn't it be cool to do a school age show for our community? Many of these kids would never get the chance to see a live show! Thank you PC for this chance. Andrea
