Getting Good Food & Good Jobs in School Cafeterias

The government of Ontario introduced new nutrition standards for schools in 2011. The new standards have resulted in a reduction of sales and school cafeterias across the province have been struggling to survive. FoodShare’s Good Food Cafe (GFC) offers a potential solution to the challenge of sustaining healthy school cafeteria programs. This report examines the sustainability and scalability of the GFC model and provides a business case for this and other similar cafeteria projects in North America.
