CFMR proudly supports McNair Secondary School’s food program which was inspired by the Breakfast Club of Canada. Designed to foster the students’ connection to the school community, The Seva Club, named after the Sanskrit word meaning ‘selfless service,’ does more than just feed students.
“We decided we would approach [this club] somewhat differently, rather than just having breakfast food out in the mornings for the students,” said Thomas Froh, one of the teachers behind the initiative. “We wanted it to be something that the students had ownership of, rather than just charity.”
The Seva Club joins a long list of clubs at McNair that help to foster a feeling of membership and belonging.
As one of the original funders of the Seva Club, CFMR continues to take an active interest in its development.
