SMS News December 12th

December 13, 2017


Here is some information that I would like to draw to your attention:

Food Drive

SMS will be collecting nonperishable food items from December 13 – 19.  All food collected will support local families.  Our goal is 100% student participation.  House points will be awarded for each student who contributes to this worthy cause. 

SMS supports this initiative because:

  • 4 out of 10 Manitoban children do not have food security
  • Manitoba has the second highest rate of food bank use in the country and this increases during the holidays
  • Hampers reduce the number of families relying on food banks

Top 10 Items

  • Canned Fish and Poultry – chicken or turkey; tuna or salmon packed in water.
  • Canned Fruit and Vegetables – packed in own juice.
  • Canned Stew, Chili, Brown Beans
  • Peanut Butter
  • Whole Grain Pasta
  • Baby Formula and Food – iron-enriched formula; baby food jars of vegetables, fruit or meat; infant cereal such as oatmeal, barley or rice.
  • Rice – Plain, brown, converted, or parboiled
  • Canned Spaghetti Sauce
  • Cereal – plain, fiber, non-sugar coated
  • Canned Soup – vegetable, tomato, lentil, peas
