Healthy School Food

The Coalition for Healthy School Food is a group of nearly 40 organizations from across Canada advocating for a national school food program. It seeks an investment by the federal government in a cost-shared Universal Healthy School Food Program that will enable all students in Canada to have access to healthy meals at school every day. Building on existing programs across the country, all schools will eventually serve a healthy meal or snack at little or no cost to students.

Canada is one of the only industrialized countries without a national school food program and was recently ranked 37th of 41 countries around providing healthy food for kids. A Universal Healthy School Food Program would support the health, wellbeing and education of all Canadian children
