“Cantine dans les écoles” pilot project
In collaboration with La Cantine pour tous, a school-meal pilot project has been tested at Chanoine-Joseph-Théorêt elementary school since September 2020. The goal is to ensure that all children in Quebec, regardless of their social background, can access healthy and balanced meals at school.
With this pay-what-you-can service, parents go online to choose meals for their children, which are delivered directly to the school. They only pay what they can afford, with a minimum of $1 per meal.
Students not only get enough healthy food to eat regardless of their parents’ income, they also avoid stigma since everyone is treated equally no matter how much their parents can pay.
