TO The Legislative Assembly of Ontario: -
has been stripped from students by the School Food and Beverage Policy and
Healthy Foods for Healthy Schools Act.
We petition that The Legislative Assembly remove the Not Permitted for Sale portion of the School Food and Beverage Policy.
We the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows: -
THAT choice is important to students as a fundamental freedom which should be provided in Ontario and Canada.
THAT students are deprived of their ability to choose what they eat while at school.
THAT students are walking off school property to purchase food, thus adversely affecting school generated revenue.
THAT athletic and extra-curricular organizations are barred from needed fundraising techniques such as bake sales.
THAT students cannot afford certain healthier options such as fruit smoothies or lean meat.
THEREFORE your petitioners request that the Legislative Assembly amend the School Food and Beverage Policy and Healthy Foods for Healthy Schools Act in accordance with student needs and local complexities.
