Going the Distance to Ottawa: Students Speak Out for School Food!

On Thursday, November 30,  Vancouver elementary school teacher, Brent Mansfield, will run 200 laps around the west lawn of the Parliament buildings. 

This run follows after Brent ran 200 laps, over 92km, around his school, with his students joining him, at the end of October. Both runs draw attention to the Government of Canada’s unfulfilled promise to invest $200 million per year for five years to establish a national school food program.

Stay Active For School Food!

No mention of school food in Federal Budget 2023. Stay involved to help make sure the federal government honours their commitment to school food.

Our principles

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?
