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.
You have the power to create change, it’s as easy as 1-2-3!
