Help Bring Healthy Foods to Canadian Schools

The Government of Canada is seeking input from all Canadians who have experience with, or an interest in, school food policy and programming in Canada, in order to help build a pan-Canadian school food policy. This policy will help guide the expansion of school food programs in Canada. When more children have healthy meals at school, it helps set them up to reach their full potential.
