Momentum is building for a school food program for Canada

We’re at a tipping point towards our goal of ensuring that all children and youth can access healthy food at school. With momentum building for a Canada-wide school food program, and with many provinces and territories making their own investments and developing programs, we have a collective and unprecedented opportunity to influence the design and direction of school food programs, policy and funding for Canada and impact the lives of children and communities across the country.
The Coalition for Healthy School Food is very excited to welcome this edition of the Canadian Association for Food Studies Journal, which includes four articles on the issue of youth and food. We’re so pleased to see research on this theme that will inform the development of school food initiatives across the country.
