Surrey Schools works with the Fraser Health Authority and the Ministry of Education so that all foods offered at school food events are safe and healthy.
Basic Food Safety Principles
Food safety is the responsibility of the district's Food and Nutrition Services department, which also manages the district's Breakfast Clubs and school lunch programs. Visit the Food Safety webpage for more information.
All children need nutritious food to grow and develop to their full potential. The Surrey School District supports the Ministry of Education's Guidelines for Food and Beverage Sales in B.C. Schools. These nutrition standards apply to all school-sponsored events where food or beverages are sold.
Food and Nutrition Services supports the efforts of parent advisory committees, district staff and food service operators to follow these standards. More information on school nutrition.
