PC Children’s Charity school grants provide funding to educate and empower communities to deliver school-based student nutrition programs across Canada, helping children and youth realize their full potential in life.

There are two grant opportunities available for publically funded schools here in Canada.

Focusing on Nutrition

Our goal is simple - we wish to help you provide higher quality nutrition for your students. We know how hard it can be to make nutritious food choices on a budget. Our hope is that our School Nutrition Grant can give you the freedom to deliver a variety of delicious and nutritious meals

This grant may be used to purchase food and consumable supplies. This grant is intended to supplement the funding of existing programs, allowing for higher quality, more sustainable programing.
