Ontario Student Nutrition Program

We help ensure students across southwestern Ontario attend school well-nourished and ready to learn, as part of the Ontario Student Nutrition Program.

We are proud to be the lead agency for the Ontario Student Nutrition Program (OSNP) in southwestern Ontario, serving thousands of children across the region. 

We work with 10 public health units, 12 school boards and many community partners to deliver funding and support to over 470 school breakfast programs and snack programs across southwestern Ontario. 

Students gain life-long healthy eating habits by being exposed to a variety of nutritious options, while benefiting from eating in a social setting. 

Children access our program for a variety of reasons. Our program is universal, allowing every child to benefit.
