NEW School Food Menu: Students asked to give school food another try

Here is what you need to know about the new menus:

  • The School Food Team has worked with Canada's Smartest Kitchen to develop and validate new recipes
  • The menu continues to be a 2 week rotating menu, with two options daily. One option remains a vegetarian option;  will be the opportunity to select “gluten friendly” for each menu item
  • There are 13 NEW menu items; selected based on the feedback we received from families, schools and vendors
  • 7 menu items have been carried over from the fall menu; however, are being somewhat modified based on feedback. This means that if a student tried it in the fall, and did not like it- they should give it another shot as it may have changed!
  • Portion sizes have increased slightly and are more consistent
