Correction to October Council Corner


The October SAB Newsletter Council Corner incorrectly listed that San Diego Frozen Yogurt was dairy free. We apologize for the error and any confusion this may have caused. Council offers a variety of frozen fruit treats on Fridays and those with specific dietary needs can consult the ingredient lists on the packages, available here. You can also call Michelle Joyce at (416) 988-0787 if you’d like to see the product/packaging in person.
