Healthy Snacks and Meals for Students
The Ontario government is increasing this year’s funding for the Student Nutrition Program and the First Nations Student Nutrition Program, by $5 million for a total of $38 million.
These programs provide more than 600,000 students across Ontario with over 90 million nutritious meals and snacks through out the year to ensure they are nourished and ready to learn.
To build on the government’s investment we are working with the Arrell Family Foundation, the Breakfast Club of Canada, the Schad Foundation, the Grocery Foundation and Student Nutrition Ontario to launch the Healthy Students Brighter Ontario campaign. This province-wide fundraising partnership is the first of its kind, and has kicked off the campaign by raising $1.6 million already!
