BC students deserve to eat the best, and that’s BC grown fruits and vegetables. The BC School Fruit & Vegetable Nutritional Program (BCSFVNP) grew out of an idea formed in 2004 to bring BC grown fruits and vegetables into the classroom.
The BC ministries of Agriculture, Education, and Health selected the BC Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation (BCAITC) to implement a pilot program. As a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing BC’s agriculture to students, we were a natural choice. Already working closely with schools, producers, suppliers, and distributors, we were proud supporters of BC farmers and BC grown produce.
Why We Love the BCSFVNP
Who Funds the BCSFVNP?
The BCSFVNP is supported by the Province of British Columbia and the First Nations Health Authority. It is administered through BCAITC, a non-profit organization dedicated to “Working to bring BC’s agriculture to our students.” The Foundation works with local growers and distributors to bring fresh BC products to students.
Please read the program brochure. It provides parents/guardians and students with information about the fresh fruit and vegetable program, along with a list of resources and websites for information on healthy eating.
