My name is Justine Burt, and I am a Peer Facilitator from the 1st semester of the 2018/2019 school year.
I wanted to thank the BLI for offering funding to our project so that we could afford to get food for the lab. It really made a difference to the students and added a burst of energy when you got a snack during class. I talked to many of the students, and they said they always looked forward to seeing what the snack of the day was. They also liked trying new things and having snacks that they had not had since they were kids. We tried to keep the food choices fun and comforting while also throwing in some new things that people had probably never had. Thanks again for this opportunity and I hope we will be able to use grants for BLI lab food again!
