The Child Nutrition Council of Manitoba is a charitable organization dedicated to helping children learn, grow, and succeed by supporting school meal and snack programs in every region of Manitoba. This basic requirement is essential in equipping students to thrive at school and set them up for future opportunities to gain education, employment and vital skills for life. 

The Council currently provides support to just under 300 schools in Manitoba, providing meals and snacks to over 34,000 students. However, the need is growing across our province and we need your help!

NEW RESOURCE: Pre-Packaged Meal & Snack Items That Meet the Manitoba School Nutrition Guidelines

Serving food in a way that meets provincial health guidelines and lowers the risk of virus transmission does not have to rely on pre-packaged foods. Pre-packaged foods can certainly complement your program, and can be a starting point while we are figuring out how to navigate our new environments. 

Finding ways to serve affordable, nutritious whole foods is important. When serving pre-packaged foods, this resource will help you select ones that meet the Manitoba School Nutrition Guidelines.

Working Together, A Magazine of the Winnipeg Foundation published a great article called Building Bright Futures, One Bite At A Time: Students Can Focus On Studies Thanks To Healthy Food Provided By Child Nutrition Council 

“It’s reassuring for parents to know if their child didn’t eat breakfast at home, then they can come to school and even if they miss school breakfast, they can still have a snack that’s a healthy choice for them to eat. Parents really appreciate the wide variety of fruits and vegetables we’re able to offer for their kids here,” Lendhart Mair says. “Sometimes parents are even able to help with us with the breakfast program and do some volunteering.”
