Join the Vancouver Food Policy Council to learn about how the federal and provincial governments are exploring how to grow school meal programs. Together we’ll identify the values and priorities of our school food programs. Join us in envisioning what our future school meal program can be! Come learn from our esteemed panel about the impact school food can have on our students’ health and academic achievement, local economic development, environmental sustainability, Indigenous Food Systems, and more:
