The New Democratic Party government in Manitoba is providing funding to improve access to meals in schools. Prime Minister Wab Kinew says a universal school nutrition program will be in place by September, as promised.

In the coming weeks, the Manitoba government plans to release $1.5 million to eliminate the Child Nutrition Council of Manitoba's waiting list until the end of the current school year.

This nonprofit organization distributes funds for meal and snack programs to schools requesting assistance. At the start of the current year, there were 51 programs on the waiting list.

The Department of Education and Early Learning says the universal program is still in the early stages of development and there is no proposed cost for the moment.

Before his election last October, Premier Wab Kinew promised a universal school nutrition program that would cost the province $30 million a year, according to the NDP.

Not that all children in Manitoba must eat as part of the school program, but that program must be accessible in all school divisions and all regions of the province, said Minister Kinew in an interview at the end of the year.

The idea is to have a meal plan universally accessible.
