The School Food Grant funds efforts that provide school-day meals to students in or adjacent to Vancouver school settings. In particular, programs must:

  • Provide healthy, nutritious, culturally appropriate school-day meals for children attending Vancouver schools in a non-stigmatizing manner
  • Pilot approaches and food service models that reflect and respect the local context of the school, and build on local knowledge, skills, and relationships
  • Support the principles, goals, and actions of the Vancouver Food Strategy and aim to address issues such as food access, diversity of voices and inclusion, and resilience
  • Align with the vision and principles of the Coalition for Healthy School Food, whose work was endorsed by Vancouver City Council in 2020
