2012 School Breakfast Program Volunteer of the Year Awards
Volunteers are critical to the existence of School Breakfast Programs across WA. Whilst Foodbank WA provides the ‘food’ component of the program free of charge to schools, the Program would not function on a school-level without the commitment and dedication of volunteers. On each school day, hundreds of volunteers across WA work to ensure that thousands of children can sit down in the classroom with a full stomach and ready to learn.
Nominations are now open for the 2012 ‘School Breakfast Program Volunteer of the Year’ Awards. The Awards scheme is aimed at helping schools to acknowledge and formally recognise the outstanding contribution that volunteers make to School Breakfast Programs across the state.
In acknowledgment of the benefits of volunteering to good mental health, Foodbank WA is happy to welcome Mentally Healthy WA’s Act-Belong-Commit initiative as a supporter of the 2012 Awards.
What is the “School Breakfast Program Volunteer of the Year” Award?
The Award is not intended as a competition, where one schools’ nominee is selected above the rest as the ‘overall’ winner – there are no ‘winners’ and ‘losers’. Rather, the purpose of the scheme is for Foodbank WA to assist each School Breakfast Program school to formally recognising the efforts of a stand-out volunteer through the provision of a certificate, a small gift and an official letter.
