Why can't kids have healthy food in schools? They can.

Support healthy food in schools

"Toronto chef Jesus Gomez makes vegetable-focused school cafeteria food kids will actually eat." - Jennifer Bain, Toronto Star

Myth: kids won’t eat healthy food. Truth: if you cook it, they will come.

With our Good Food Café program, we’re modelling a universal, healthy school cafeteria. For years we served up healthy school lunches but have now switched gears from cooking lunch to advocacy. We do not currently run a hot lunch program, but instead are connecting key stakeholders in the school food landscape to create systemic change for all students.

Good Food Café

With our Good Food Cafés, we're showing that kids will eat healthy food. It's all about serving food that's cooked from scratch, tastes great and fuels minds. Hear from some of the kitchen staff making healthy meals every day.
