In case you missed it, the 2019-2020 federal budget was released last Tuesday and there is some good news for food!
We were excited to see the intention to work with provinces to develop a National School Food Program. While there is no funding committed, this is a positive step forward. Today is the LAST DAY to sign the petition for a national school food program! Please sign and share!
Other exciting highlights from this budget include;
- The release of the long-awaited Food Policy for Canada.
- Helping Canadian Communities Access Healthy Food: $50 million investment over five years for infrastructure for local food projects (e.g. food banks, farmers’ markets, and other community driven projects).
