#NourishBrownBag Challenge


Make Your Lunch Matter

A simple lunch to help kids across Nova Scotia

Good Eating = Good Thinking.  Healthy school food programs ensure that kids are well-nourished and better prepared for the classroom and in life.

Make Lunch.  Donate.  Pass it on! 

1- Pack yourself a healthy homemade lunch.  Take a photo or video of you making - or enjoying - your lunch.

2- Make a donation to Nourish to support healthy school food programs for Nova Scotia's children and youth.  Donate your lunch money. 

3- Share your picture or video on social media using #NourishBrownBag and tag a friend (or two) to take the challenge too.  Tell us why you took the challenge:  Who nominated you?  Who are you nominating?  Did you donate monthly?  What Nourish programs are most important to you?  How does the work of Nourish inspire you?
