Fuel Up! subsidy

To ensure that no child goes hungry and every child eats healthy while at school, subsidies are available to families through Fuel Up! Subsidies can be used toward the purchase of ONE hot or cold meal, per school day, per child.   Please note the subsidized meal program is intended support families who are experiencing food security challenges or financial hardships (either on an on-going basis, or as a result of shorter-term changes to employment or access to food).

Does my family qualify?

  • Your child must be enrolled at one of our elementary or middle schools or in the POWER or RCAP program.
  • One of the following reasons applies to your family’s situation:
    • Loss of job (regular income).
    • Low or limited income.
    • Parent or caregiver is living with a medical condition that interferes with your ability to work or care for your child.
    • You have been referred by the Ministry of Children and Family Development or a social worker.
