City of Vancouver Passes Motion in Support of Healthy School Food

On March 10, 2020, First Call submitted comments to the City of Vancouver supporting passage of the motion, “Taking Steps Toward a National Cost-Shared Universal Healthy School Food Program.” Click here to read our comments.

We are pleased to hear that the City of Vancouver passed the motion on March 11th. One part of the motion reads, “THAT Vancouver City Council and the City of Vancouver endorse the ongoing efforts of the Coalition for Healthy School Food to advocate for a universal, cost-shared healthy school food program based on the shared belief that all children and youth in British Columbia should have daily access to healthy food at school.”
