Temple Sinai’s Social Action Committee has worked with Flemington Public School for almost ten years. This is a school that is located in an area surrounded by social housing. Temple Sinai assisted the school in setting up a breakfast program open to all students in the school. With the assistance of Temple Sinai (Brotherhood, Women of Temple Sinai and SAC), The Investor’s Group and government support, Flemington has created a very successful breakfast program feeding as many as 100 children each morning.
The children are served a hot breakfast five days a week. The menu varies but includes foods like pancakes, eggs, French toast, yogurt, fresh fruit and juice. Temple members also donate cereal with at least two grams of fibre to help supplement the menu.
Temple Sinai congregants volunteer when they can to help serve the breakfast. In addition, the school hires people from the community to help in the preparation and serving of the breakfast.
This program allows children attending Flemington Public School to be well nourished and ready to learn.
