Healthy School Food Program – New for 2020-2021

Dear parents/guardians:

We have some exciting news to share with you all; the province’s new Healthy School Food Program will be rolling out this fall.

Healthy, nutritious food is important for student achievement. Working with the Government of Prince Edward Island, we want to ensure that nutritious lunches are available to as many students as possible.

The Healthy School Food Program will provide an opportunity for families to order healthy lunches five days a week. Meals will be prepared and delivered directly to schools at lunch time by local food service providers. Nut free, gluten free, dairy free and vegetarian options will be available.

The new Healthy School Food Program will be Pay What You Can.

As of today, families can now prepare for the upcoming school year by registering for the program here: www.peischoolfood.ca.

Once you’ve registered, you will receive your login and password via email, along with a welcome information package between September 1 -7, 2020. This username and password will allow you to login into the ordering platform once it is active. Therefore, registration is required to participate.

If a family needs to reach a support staff, they can by email at peischoolfood@edu.pe.ca or by calling 902-438-4895.

The Healthy School Food Program will run alongside our school’s existing lunch program, which include Greco, Northumberland Arena, and Subway on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. If you choose to order food from the existing program, you will continue to order by using the hot lunch registration system (details for this will go home with students on the first day of school). Both options can be used.

Stay tuned, as further details about the New Healthy School Food Program will be directed to your email (Don’t forget to check your junk mail)!

Sincerely,

John Van Dyke
Principal
