Student Nutrition Program being Expanded

Ontario will be expanding and enhancing its Student Nutrition Program so that 56,000 more children and youth will get the nutritional boost they need to succeed at school. The province is investing $32 million over the next three years as part of a five year plan to enhance the Student Nutrition Program. Under the new plan, 340 new breakfast programs will be established in elementary and secondary schools that need it most across Ontario. The program will also be expanded to on-reserve First Nations schools, beginning in northern Ontario. During the 2012-13 school year, over 695,000 school-age children and youth benefited from more than 4,200 breakfast, lunch and snack programs.
