Did you know that Canada is the only G7 country without a national school food program?
NSFHSA is supporting Nourish Nova Scotia in their campaign 'Speak Up' requesting the federal government to invest in a national school food program.
Research has shown that children who eat nutritious food not only helps them feel better but also to learn better. We know that not all children have access or time to eat before arriving at school. The health of children is therefore a federal concern and NSFHSA has signed the petition and will be writing to MPs and we invite you to join the campaign, sign the petition and share information with parents/guardians/students to raise awareness of this campaign.
