Building a national school food policy: Closed consultation

Current status: Closed

This online consultation questionnaire ran from November 16, 2022 to December 16, 2022.

Consult the National School Food Policy Engagements – What We Heard Report.

The Government of Canada is taking steps to build a national school food policy. This policy will help guide the expansion of school food programs in Canada. When more children have healthy meals at school, it helps set them up to reach their full potential. Through this online consultation questionnaire, we heard about your experiences and views on school food programs and the most important objectives for a school food policy.

Who was the focus of this consultation

We sought input from all individuals who have experience with, or an interest in, school food policy and programming in Canada.
