NRC KIDS IN FOCUS webinar series presents:
Nourishing School Communities: From School Nutrition Policies to Reality
When public-private partnerships work towards healthier school food.
Nourishing School Communities is a collaborative, evidence- based initiative that aims to give school children across Canada a fresh new perspective on food. Our partners are working together towards a brighter healthier future by engaging First Nations schools, public schools and after-school facilities. We are supporting school communities with tools and resources to make important changes to their school environments – changes that aim to shift policies and practices in a way that makes healthy eating easy, accessible and accepted.
- Provide an overview of the Nourishing School Communities initiative and current provincial school nutrition policies in Canada.
- Present two case studies of private school lunch providers using the current provincial school nutrition policies in Canada.
- Explore learnings from working with school food providers through public/private partnerships.
Join Mary McKenna, PhD, RD and Professor in the Faculty of Kinesiology at the University of New Brunswick, Ruthie Burd also known as the Lunch Lady, Devon Peart, RD and Katie Jessop RD as they provide an overview of the current scope of school food nutrition policy across Canada and discuss how to translate theory into reality with school lunch providers.
