Applying for Funding for School Breakfast, Snack and Lunch Programs

Schools in Manitoba can apply for funding to provide nourishment to students. Schools need to apply by April 15th to be considered for funding for the following school year.

We notify schools of our funding decision in late summer. Schools that receive funding are required to:

  • submit an interim report by January 15th;
  • submit a final year-end report by July 15th;
  • submit copies of their receipts by July 15th; 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, and other donors. Our funding is meant to be used mainly for food purchases.
