The Upper Canada Leger Centre for Education and Training is responsible for the administration of Student Nutrition Programs across the following regions: Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, Prescott, Russell, Renfrew and Leeds and Grenville.
The Student Nutrition Programs take place within schools to provide breakfast, snack or lunch programs for students to ensure that all students have the nourishment they need to maximize their learning ability in the classroom.
Student Nutrition Programs (SNP) in Ontario are provincially led. Ontario’s Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS) supports Student Nutrition Programs with funding for food and consumable supplies, as well as provides direction for program standards (guidelines) to ensure the quality of the programs.
The Upper Canada Leger Centre for Education and Training works with Healthy Eating for Better Learning, Nutrition 4 Kids and Food for Learning. The Upper Canada Leger Centre provides support, direction and funding to schools who offer nutrition programs.
