HKCC Launches New Fuel Stop Canteen
The Healthy Kids Community Challenge Thunder Bay (HKCC TBay) is excited to announce the launch of the new “Fuel Stop” Canteen at Delaney Arena, which will offer a variety of healthy menu options from September to December 2017. We know healthy eating isn’t easy these days – everywhere children go they are bombarded by unhealthy, heavily marketed, processed foods. In order for kids to grow-up healthy, they need to fuel their body with nutritious, whole foods and we believe places children go to be active should support their health.
Watch for our new homemade menu items that feature fresh ingredients:
- Baked blueberry bannock
- Protein Power Balls
- Hummus and Carrots
- Homemade Wild Rice & Veg Soup
- Hearty Chili
- Cheesy Veggie Pasta
- Whole Fruit
We look forward to community support of this initiative to make rec centres places where the healthy choice is the easy choice for kids and their families.
During the time that the Fuel Stop Canteen is in operation, we strongly ask that patrons refrain from bringing in any outside food. This will be enforced at Delaney at all times. Throughout the pilot project, the public will have the opportunity to provide input about the Fuel Stop menu and what other options you’d like to see offered – via surveys distributed through our website, on social media and in-person at the Canteen. We hope you’ll support our efforts to offer healthier, tasty options at the Delaney Canteen and look forward to offering you some free samples during the week of September 5-8th. Don’t forget to join us for a FREE public skate at the Fuel Stop launch on Saturday September 9th from 12-1:30pm. See you then!
