Nourishing our Children

It’s simple: when children are hungry, they can’t focus, and if they can’t focus, they can’t learn. That’s why more than 750 school-based Student Nutrition Programs (SNPs) provide over 170,000 nutritious meals every school day. Here, students eat a healthy breakfast, lunch, or a snack so that they can focus on learning rather than hunger.


Islington JMS offers the Morning Meal Program to all of our students. The Morning meal is distributed before morning recess. The morning meal program consists of the three food groups recommended by the Canada Food Guide.
  • a serving of vegetables or fruit
  • a serving of a whole wheat grain
  • a serving of milk or alternative
