Applying for funding for school food programs
Schools in Manitoba can apply for funding to provide nourishment to students. Schools need to apply by April 15 to be considered for funding for the following school year.
We notify schools of our funding decision in late summer. To remain in good standing, schools that receive funding need to:
- submit an interim report by January 15th;
- submit a final year-end report in July;
- keep their receipts; and
- make themselves available to receive a site visit from our team of registered dietitians during the school year.
Our funding is made possible through generous funding from the Province of Manitoba, The Winnipeg Foundation, the CIBC, and other donors. Our funding is meant to be used mainly for food purchases.
