Norman Johnston Alternative Program was host to a federal funding announcement on Oct. 3.

The Blackburn Hamlet high school was the backdrop for $1.2 million in funding to Farm to Cafeteria Canada programs, announced by federal Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor.

A slice of the funding from Farm to Cafeteria Canada will stay in Blackburn, as the school’s food program was a recipient of a $10,000 grant through the program.

The grants are given to elementary and high schools across Canada to support schools bringing in locally harvested foods and putting salad bars in cafeterias. READ MORE
