It’s time to #SpeakUp4SchoolFood


Did You Know?

Canada is the only G7 country without
a national school food program.

That’s why this Fall election, we are asking all candidates to commit to investing in healthy food in schools. We look forward to working with elected MPs, across party lines, to support the health and well-being of all Nova Scotia children and youth.

Be Part of Something Bigger


The Coalition for Healthy School Food is a group of over 40 organizations from across Canada advocating for a national school food program. They seek an investment by the federal government in a cost-shared Universal Healthy School Food Program that will enable all students in Canada to have access to healthy meals at school every day. Building on existing programs across the country, all schools will eventually serve a healthy meal or snack at little or no cost to students.
