Province pumping money into school nutrition programs

340 new schools will benefit

The Premier has made another pre-budget announcement, this time focusing on kids who may not be able to eat breakfast at home or bring in a healthy lunch.

The province plans on pumping $32 million into 340 new school nutrition programs.

It would benefit 56,000 more students.

Premier Kathleen Wynne underlines it's important for kids to have full stomachs because it helps them learn. She says kids come into school excited about what food is being offered to them.

There are already 4,200 school nutrition programs in place

    when will Wynne think that we the seniors on fixed income would like to eat well too? I guess she knows that we hate her & she wouldn't get our votes anyway.

    Wynne says it's important for kids to have a full stomach to learn. What's the damned excuse for the Liberals not learning? I guess they're starving.

    Just another attempt by this morally bankrupt party to distract voters from the fact the Liberals should be thrown out of office.
