Exploring Principals’ Perceptions of the School Food Environment in Alberta

The aim of this study was to capture the current landscape of school food in the province of Alberta during the 2014/2015 academic year. To achieve this goal, we surveyed school principals in K-12 schools across Alberta to understand their perceptions of the food services, policies, programs, curriculum, and initiatives currently in place at their schools.

It is our hope that findings from this survey contribute to the ongoing conversation around the promotion of healthy school food in Alberta.
