Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and a candidate in this provincial election wants to see easier access to breakfast for school kids. Liberal incumbent for Antigonish, Randy Delorey discussed a plan during a meeting held last evening by the Antigonish Women’s Resource Centre and the Poverty Reduction Coalition.
Delorey says that children are often the people who suffer from poverty the most. Not having a nutritious meal in the morning can negatively affect test scores, well being and overall health for students:
Delorey hopes that being re-elected into a Liberal held government will give him and the party a chance to build on momentum from the past 4 years. Continuing to work on initiatives, such as breakfast programs over two terms is most effective in Delorey’s mind.
