Collaboration with other agencies

A Resolution calling for a universal provincial school lunch program was successfully passed at the HSF Annual General Meeting in April 2015 and the PEI HSF continues to lead in the development of a provincial school food strategy and to work with other agencies to attain that goal.

To assist in fulfilling this goal, PEIHSF contracted Tracy Michael of Nourished Kitchen, Dietician Consulting to compile an Environmental Scan of School Food in PEI and a School Food Fact Sheet.

We have also worked in collaboration with provincial government departments and have secured letters of support from Parker Grimmer, Chief Operations Officer, Public Schools Branch and John Jamieson, Deputy Minister, Department of Agriculture and Fisheries.
