“Food brings people together.”
This is the thought Principal Craig Houghton said is behind a new lunch program at Fort St. James Secondary School.
The monthly lunches will gather one grade along with the school faculty in the gym of the school to enjoy a meal together.
Teachers who may not even teach students in a certain grade can have the opportunity to connect with them, said Houghton.
The lunches are prepared by Dave Stainton and the Enterprise Centre foods class he teaches.
The first of the monthly lunches took place on Feb. 6 and was the perfect foil to a frigid day outside.
The hot meal included turkey with gravy, cheesy potatoes and vegetables.
