3. How are the Packs distributed?
Schools: Packs are delivered to the school on wrapped pallets. Each pack is labelled with the school, student name, and grade. The school decides when & how to distribute the packs to the students.
Home: Packs that are charged a shipping fee are shipped to the address that you specified when placing your online order. These orders are shipped by Canada Post.
