After the Bell:
After the Bell is a food pack program that runs through the summer. We work with Food Banks Canada to create healthy food packs for school aged kids who often do not have the same access to school breakfast/lunch programs during the summer months.

Christmas Hampers:
These hampers provide additional supplies for a Christmas meal in December. We work with Christmas Hope organizations to make sure that every child in Lethbridge is able to get a gift for Christmas.

Recreation & Culture Fee Assistance Program:

The City of Lethbridge Fee Assistance Program is administered by the Recreation and Culture department. It is to provide Lethbridge residents with the opportunity to participate in Recreation and Culture programs and activities at a subsidized cost or at no cost (depending on the cost of the activity). Confidentiality will be maintained.
