Students’ Action For Healthy Lunches Petition Receives Over 2500 Signatures

The trend of school community choosing healthy options for the lunch is becoming increasingly popular in recent times. It is often noticed that students are not consulted when it comes to their choice of food and the decision is made by someone else in the community. However, things are changing as students have taken the initiative to make their opinion get a say in the process.

Students belonging to the Harbor View High have decided to avoid the services of a new cafeteria, that would bring back former service provider Chartwells to the school. They have forwarded an online petition to the New Brunswick government asking them to find a suitable service provider that can promote healthy options for the lunch. The petition has so far received 2,500 signatures that show the growing popularity of this campaign.

Experts say that this is a good trend that can bring in local service providers into the game and provide fresh food that is grown by local farmers and producers. The petition was launched by a 12th-grade student named Kennedy McGeachy and she has emphasized the importance of working with small businesses that can offer customized solutions.
