Our vision is a Canada in which every school-aged child and youth has a healthy meal or snack at school daily.
The Coalition for Healthy School Food is a network of over 170 non-profit member organizations advocating for public investment in and federal standards for a Universal Healthy Cost-Shared School Food Program.
All children should have access to healthy food at school. The Coalition for Healthy School Food works to lay the foundation for healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime and ensure that learning is not hindered by a lack of access to healthy food.
Canada is ranked 37th of 41 countries on providing healthy food for kids yet we don't have a national school food program. The Coalition for Healthy School Food advocates for increased investments in school food programs to ensure all kids have access to nutritious meals every day. But what would such a program look like?
