“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:

Agnes G. Hodge Public School – Learn To Cook
