Examples of projects that could be eligible for funding include:
-A training program run by a chef school to help cafeteria staff create healthier food options.
-A healthy eating club for students.
-A partnership with farmers to provide healthy, local Ontario foods to students.
-An updated cafeteria space that incorporates healthy eating information or an urban garden.
