Standing Committee on Finance 2012 Pre-Budget Hearings

2012 - Standing Committee on Finance 2012 Pre-Budget Hearings

On November 20, 2012 Diana Bronson, Executive Director of Food Secure Canada, appeared before the Finance Committee’s pre-budgetary hearings to recommend that the Federal government commit to a Student Nutrition Program cost shared with provinces, cities, parents, and local communities.

FSC’s stance on this issue stems from the People’s Food Policy, in which more than 3,500 Canadians developed recommendations aimed at creating a sustainable, healthy and fair food system for Canada and FSC’s recent National Assembly in Edmonton which took a position to advocate for the creation of a National School Nutrition Program as the first step towards building a national food policy

FoodShare Toronto’s Executive Director Debbie Field is a founding member of FSC and her presentation at FSC’s Assembly (see below) helped build the case for a universal student nutrition program.
