Nourishing School Communities

Nourishing School Communities is a collaborative, evidence-based initiative that aims to get more healthy and local foods into the minds and onto the plates of school children across Canada. We are engaging many partners in this process – from school children, parents, teachers, principals, school meal providers, farmers, after-school providers, First Nations communities, researchers and policy makers.

Together we are supporting important changes to school food environments, changes that aim to shift policies and practices in a way that makes healthy local foods easier to access and fun to eat.
