“As an educator in the Niagara Catholic School Board, I have seen the impact of NNP as they provide the breakfast and snack programs for the schools within Niagara Catholic. As well, they have provided families with over $700,000 in Grocery Gift Cards during the pandemic. I have built a great relationship with NNP and they truly care about the children of Niagara”.
