The Good Food Box

Late last school year, Lester B Pearson High School asked the city to be a North East Calgary distribution point (Hub) for the Calgary Good Food Box.
This year we have been granted that privilege. The Good Food Box is a program under the Community Kitchen Program of Calgary whereby you can purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at amazing costs.. The more people that join in the program the greater our buying power becomes. They offer ALL Calgarians access to nutritious food to ensure no one goes hungry. The Fruit and Vegetable boxes are put together and delivered to your closest location (Hub) once a month.

As the Pearson Hub continues to grow, we invite the community, your staff and students to participate and join us using program.
The order date for this month (stay tuned for the next pick up date) with pick up of your good food box (to be announced). From Lester B Pearson High school. Payment needs to be received by (to be announced). If you are interested or would like more information please email

This is an example of a “Small Box” from last month, Included in the box Watermelon,
honeydew, mushrooms, tomatoes, pears, apples, bananas, oranges, plums, kohlrabi,
corn on the cob, onions, carrots, celery, green pepper, red pepper, grapefruits, lemons,
lettuce and a cauliflower. All of these fresh fruit and vegetables for only $25.

Calgary Transit Rebate Program

Families at our school may be eligible to participate in the CBE’s Calgary Transit Pass Rebate Program for the 2017-18 school year.

An email was sent on Thursday, Nov. 16 to parents/guardians of eligible students with a link to the online rebate portal. If families do not have an email address on file at their school or if they have not subscribed to receive commercial emails​ they will receive a paper registration by mail. This process will take up to two to three weeks to complete. If you did not receive an email or letter by Dec. 11, 2017, and believe your child is eligible for a rebate, eligibility will be addressed after this date.

Families can begin to submit their passes for rebate on Friday, Dec. 1, 2017.

Visit for more information on things such as eligibility, rebate amounts, how to register and how to submit a monthly pass.
