Hundreds of thousands of children and youth across Canada rely on breakfast, lunch and snack programs to get them through the day. Hundreds of thousands more go to school each day hungry, yet Canada is the only westernized country that doesn’t have a national child nutrition program.

Through the Canadian Child & Youth Nutrition Program Network (CCYNPN) organizations across Canada have come together to speak with one voice on the issues of child hunger and nutrition here in our country. We are truly a national network with representation in all provinces and territories. Our mandate is to raise awareness of the critical importance of child and youth nutrition programs as they relate to the issues of health, agriculture and the economy.

On this site you will find links to organizations working to improve the nutritional health of Canadian children. You will also find resources including research that demonstrates the impact of child and youth nutrition programs as well as policy documents.
