A partnership between Food For The Poor Canada and the ICHS Alumnae Association Toronto Chapter, has resulted in a new Food and Nutrition lab for the students at Immaculate Conception High School in Jamaica.

Ginelle Brown, a Food and Nutrition student in the sixth form shared what this new lab means to her.

“Looking back to when I first entered this institution, the Food and Nutrition lab was always a marvel to me. My love and passion for this subject was manifested here in these very labs. However, after years and years of use, utensils were worn out, the equipment began to pose a challenge to operate and the lab was too small for all the food enthusiasts who were always in the kitchen. The promise of a new Food and Nutrition lab was a long awaited dream.

I’m not sure if it’s the spacious environment or the exquisite layout but something has me hooked. The fancy new equipment, utensils and facilities have made practical and exams a breeze. Not to mention the new presentation apparatus which has made class time more fascinating. I’m sure all Food and Nutrition students would agree that just by standing in the lab, we all feel a sense of pride.

We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all those who worked hard to make this remodeling a success. I know that this lab will be able to benefit not only the students of today but also the students of tomorrow.”
