$12,000 Awarded To 2016-2017 Metro Green Apple Winners

“Healthy eating starts here!”  That’s the motto of the Metro Green Apple School Program.  Their goal is to encourage Ontario students to adopt healthy eating habits by participating in a project that will have a positive impact on their home, school or community.

Annually, Metro invests $500,000 by awarding $1,000 grants to elementary and secondary schools in Ontario.  And recently, Brantford schools received a total of $12,000 for their unique projects encouraging healthy eating at school.

The following Brantford schools were the successful recipients of $1,000 each for the 2016-2017 school year:
