Green Apple School Program - A Metro Initiative

Healthy eating starts here!

After nine years, the final edition of the Green Apple School Program has come to an end with the 2020-2021 school year.

THANK YOU to our grocers across the province who have invested in their communities year after year and made this program possible.

THANK YOU to all the teachers who have brought all the projects to life. THANK YOU for your commitment to developing healthy eating habits among young people, and more specifically for increasing their consumption of fruits and vegetables, over the years. Your involvement has allowed an entire generation to learn, taste and discover the pleasure of eating well.

Since 2012, the Green Apple School Program has helped promote healthy eating among young people, notably through the creation of hundreds of gardens and healthy recipe books, and the organization of thousands of cooking workshops and culinary discoveries. In total, nearly $12 million has been donated by METRO to schools in Ontario and Québec.

METRO will continue to invest in making a positive impact in the communities in which it operates, through various current and future initiatives.
