The EAT 2 LEARN Partnership was formed in 2002 with a purpose of working together with schools, parents and local communities to help them understand, accept, support and deliver sustainable, unique Student Nutrition Programs. In working toward this vision, EAT 2 LEARN has dedicated itself to providing students in Elgin and St. Thomas access to and knowledge of healthy food choices. At all times, a consistent message of availability, universality and acceptance is promoted.
