Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Theme: Sustaining the momentum: advocating for change
Celebrating the first-ever commitment to a National School Food Program in the recent federal budget, this interactive, action-orientated workshop will explore next steps to ensure that the best possible program is developed and funded in Canada, and how it can be complemented and supported by initiatives of F2S and others working across the country. Debbie Field, Coalition for Healthy School Food Coordinator, and other Coalition members will provide an overview of their efforts to date, and why they believe the federal government decided to join other G7 and most countries in the world in supporting school food. In addition, they will share details of the campaign, #NourishKidsNow- Invest in School Food.

The Coalition, a group of over 56 organizations from across Canada, is seeking an investment by the federal government in a cost-shared Universal Healthy School Food Program which will build on existing programs across the country. Its vision is for all schools to eventually serve a healthy meal or snack at little or no cost to students, enabling all students to have access to healthy meals at school every day.

Thème : Maintenir l’impulsion, promouvoir le changement
En guise de célébration du tout premier engagement envers un programme national d’alimentation scolaire dans le récent budget fédéral, cet atelier interactif orienté action permettra aux participants d’explorer les prochaines étapes à suivre pour assurer la mise en place et le financement du meilleur programme possible au Canada. On explorera aussi les mesures à prendre pour mettre à contribution les initiatives De la ferme à l’école et des autres organismes qui interviennent dans ce dossier au Canada. Debbie Field, coordonnatrice de la Coalition pour une saine alimentation scolaire, et d’autres membres de la Coalition donneront un aperçu des efforts déployés à ce jour et expliqueront les raisons pour lesquelles, selon eux, le gouvernement fédéral a décidé de se joindre aux autres pays du G7 et à la plupart des pays du monde pour appuyer l’alimentation scolaire. Ils parleront également de la campagne #NourrissonsNosJeunes – Investissons en alimentation scolaire.

La Coalition, qui regroupe 56 organismes de partout au Canada, demande au gouvernement fédéral de créer un programme universel de saine alimentation scolaire, à coût partagé, s'appuyant sur les investissements déjà existants partout au pays. Elle veut que toutes les écoles puissent un jour servir aux élèves, gratuitement ou à un prix modique, des collations ou des repas santé. C’est ainsi que tous les jeunes auront accès à des repas sains à l’école tous les jours.
