About THE BC chapter

Anchor 1

The BC Chapter of the Coalition for Healthy School Food is a provincial chapter of the Coalition for Healthy School Food, administered by the Public Health Association of BC

In 2018, four BC-based Coalition members launched the BC Chapter; since then, the BC Chapter has grown to 60 member organizations across the province. The BC Chapter is also endorsed by 30+ organizations who stand behind the Coalition’s vision of a universal, healthy school food program for all K-12 students in BC and Canada. Learn more about our network here.


The BC Chapter is collectively advocating for public investment - including funding and support - for a high quality school food program that meets guiding principles based on best practices. The BC Chapter provides a united voice for those across British Columbia, to advocate and work collectively towards the development, expansion and enrichment of school food programs that meet the diverse needs of BC’s school communities.


The three main activities of the BC Chapter are:


  1. to advocate to BC and Federal Governments for public investment in school food programs;

  2. to engage with a wide variety of school food stakeholders in BC and grow the school food movement;

  3. to help connect and share information between the thousands of diverse school food program practitioners across BC and Canada.
