The Delta Fire Fighters Healthy Snack Program, launched in March 2021.

This initiative, currently funded by Delta’s firefighters via payroll deductions, recognizes the crucial role that nutrition plays in development and learning for youth.

The program is delivered in liaison with Delta School District and currently serves 21 schools in Delta.  Our members purchase, organize and deliver snacks to these designated schools in Delta.  We would like to acknowledge the support of The Real Canadian Superstore on Scott Road who assists us, fulfilling the snack orders and having everything ready to go on pick up day at the beginning of every month.

It is our hope that we can expand the program to additional schools by the end of 2021.

“This snack program helps alleviate some financial stress for families and kids have easy access to snacks, there are no barriers as they can grab snacks whenever they feel hungry. This program also helps to build community relationships and the children get so excited when they see the fire trucks pull up to make the deliveries.”

Kirsten Hermanson, District Manager - Prevention & School Wellness, Delta School District #37

“I’m so proud of Delta Fire Fighters and the launch of this program. Once again, they are finding a need within the community and coming together to fulfill that need. The fact that this program is being funded by members through the payroll deduction program and Fire Fighters are volunteering to coordinate and deliver the snacks, this truly demonstrates how we can make a positive difference in our community.”

Guy McKintuck - Fire Chief, Delta Fire Department
