Momentum is building across Canada and in
Nova Scotia for a national school food program!
#SpeakUp4SchoolFood is a grassroots effort to demonstrate the existing and broad support of Nova Scotians for a Universal Healthy School Food Program. This campaign is led by Ecology Action Centre, Nourish Nova Scotia (both Coalition for Healthy School Food member organizations), Grow NS and other agricultural, health and educational partners.
#SpeakUp4SchoolFood is in response to the interest and drive from community and has gained local and national momentum. Community health boards, schools, libraries and many community groups have come together to show their support and raise awareness of the benefits and opportunities of healthy food in schools with decision-makers.
Many national organizations also work on school food in Nova Scotia.
