Did you know Canada is the only G7 country without a national school food program? Although, school food programs (primarily breakfast meals) are delivered in 93% of Nova Scotia public schools at no cost to students, these programs are currently supported by a patchwork of funding. We know schools, staff and parents are doing their best, but they need help to nourish kids while at school.
Nourish Nova Scotia, the Ecology Action Centre and partners have launched a new campaign calling for federal investment in a national school food program. All students need access to good food to fuel their minds and bodies!
