Advocating for School Food Policy and Programs
in the Federal Budget 2024
Every child across Canada should have access to a healthy lunch at school. DNL is currently advocating for Members of Parliament across NL to have conversations and raise their voices to be sure Budget 2024 includes adequate, sustainable funding to support a Canada-wide School Food Program.
As a part of our advocacy efforts, we are asking all DNL members to please help us by using the template added below to send a letter to your MP. The more letters sent the better so we hope you can find time out of your busy day to support this issue. Please download the template, personalize it, and forward it to your local MP (a list of MP's is linked below).
This is a very urgent and important issue that the Federal Liberal Government has stated the intention to craft a national policy around school food, but has not followed through with money in the budget yet. We want Budget 2024 to have monies dedicated to national school food policy and programs!
The School Lunch Association of NL and
The Coalition for Healthy School Food need our help!
Every child across Canada should have access to a healthy lunch at school. Please see the information below on advocacy efforts to include a Canada-wide SchooFood Program in the Federal Budget 2023.
