A message from our Executive Director, Sheldon Taylor: 

The Dovercourt Boys and Girls Club is adding more food options to its After School Program menu.

The Club remains committed to the Government of Ontario’s After School Program Guidelines 2017/2018 including:
  • Decreasing childhood obesity
  • Increasing healthy eating 
  • Increasing physical activity in children and youth
  • Reducing rate of youth violence; and 
  • Reducing childhood poverty

Dovercourt Boys and Girls Club’s staff and volunteers will begin a food program that continues introducing snacks: healthy fruits and vegetables. Now, however, a sandwich option will be added to the menu.

With support from the Government of Ontario, Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, Furlani, and Lady York Foods, children and youth will be provided twice a week with either a,

  • Ham Sandwich
  • Chicken Sandwich 
  • Vegetable Sandwich

I am sure you are pleased as we are to see Dovercourt Boys and Girls Club continuing its efforts to ensure our members are well-served.

Thank you to our partners:
