It is nice to have something around the school in terms of food when a child is without or only brings unhealthy food.

Fuelling generations of students to lead a more nourishing life.

About Us

What began with food programs at 6 Halton schools in 1997 has now evolved to 130+schools in Halton programs in every Halton school, ensuring that no student in the region goes hungry at school.

Along with our community partners and army of volunteers, we are able to nourish and nurture generations of students. We know that nutrition is essential to their success and that habits established in childhood set the foundation for healthy behaviours in adulthood.

Our work is even more crucial, given that Canada remains one of the few industrialized countries with out a national school food program. As a result, access to proper nutrition is inconsistent and systems rely mainly on ‘patchwork’ solutions.

We feed kids everyday

Our
Philosophy

We believe that every student should have access to healthy food and we know that nutritional coaching helps young people better realize the importance of healthy eating. Providing essential fuel for optimal growth during school ensures optimal brain development while supplying energy for daily activities. It also improves learning ability, attention span, and behaviour while decreasing the risk of chronic diseases later in life.

The fact is, 1 in 10 students arrive at school each day without enough food to sustain them throughout the day.  A staggering 6 in 10 high school students arrive at school without having eaten breakfast.  1 in 3 students entering Kindergarten are considered overweight or obese.


Halton Food for Thought (HFFT) is dedicated to feeding the success of our students, one healthy, happy student tummy at a time.
