Healthy Schools

Glenwood Elementary promotes healthy eating and encourages children to make healthy choices.

Glenwood Elementary participates in the “Agriculture in the Classroom” program; a program provided at no cost to the school by The BC School Fruit and Vegetable Nutritional Program which is part of ActNowBC, an initiative to improve the health of BC children and families.  The program provides students and school staff with fresh fruits or vegetable snack every other week.  Eating the daily recommended amount of fruits and vegetables improves children’s health and improves children’s ability to concentrate.  The fresh and nutritious fruits and vegetables to be served through the AIC program are all grown in BC (subject to availability).
