Event description
This event will bring together experts and advocates from across BC, to discuss the future of universal, healthy school food programs

About this Event

Join Coalition for Healthy School Food members, endorsers and supporters for an evening of information-sharing, consultation and networking!

During this event, attendees will learn about existing school food initiatives taking place across BC, and engage in conversation about the future of a national, universal, cost-shared, healthy school food program. The event will include food, facilitated round-table conversations, and presentations from stakeholders working in health, education, and food & agriculture sectors across the province.

In their 2019 budget, and as part of the recent National Food Policy, the Federal Government committed to work "alongside provinces, territories, and not-for-profit organizations towards the creation of a National School Food Program".

Here in BC, a patchwork of existing school food programs, being championed by local school communities, are exploring and showcasing what is possible for the future of school food. Together through resource-sharing and collaboration, we can ensure the successful funding and implementation of a school food program that meets the needs of all BC children and youth.

This event will be held on the traditional, unceded territories of Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.
