We proudly present our new and improved look

After months of planning and working with our partners at Confedde we have landed on a new look and feel for our Halton Food for Thought brand.This process took months of brainstorming, collaborating, reviewing drafts and of course multiple versions but it’s all worth it to get to the final product. We hope you like what you see and encourage you to navigate our new website brought to life through lots of hardwork with our talented and ever supportive partners at MiniGiants.

Here we grow again!

The 2022-23 school year has officially begun!  

As an organization, Halton Food for Thought is dedicated to student success. Over the last few months, we have been working hard to build capacity and strength with the addition of new Staff and Board of Directors members. Visit Our Team for updates.

We are thrilled to partner with both Halton school boards to ensure a safe return to school, and with that a return to more traditional Student Nutrition Programs and initiatives, including our annual Breakfast Bash.




Enjoy your summer and speak to you soon!

It’s an exciting time to be involved with Halton Food for Thought and we ask you to join us for the ride! Check back for updates throughout the summer to see the changes.

Until then, on behalf of our HHFT Team, and our Halton student families, thank you again for your support and enjoy your summer!

We hope you

How to Take Action

Help US Fuel their Future 

We give Halton students access to nourishing food and support, creating healthier tomorrows for all. Whether you are a student or an individual looking to give back to your community here are some of the ways that you can get involved:

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.
