School Food Survey: Principals' Perceptions of the School Food Environment in AB

During the 2014/2015 academic year, the Alberta Policy Coalition for Chronic Disease Prevention (APCCP), Alberta Food Matters (AFM), and University of Alberta researchers conducted a survey of school principals in Alberta to understand their perceptions of the school food environment. 

The purpose of the survey was to provide a snapshot of school food in the province of Alberta. More specifically, the survey aimed to provide a better understanding of the types of school food programs, policies and initiatives in place within Alberta schools.  

To review survey findings, please follow this link to the final report: The final report includes a presentation of survey results, as well as a glossary of terms, demographic information, study limitations, and a discussion of main findings.

It is our hope that findings from the survey help to celebrate the many successful activities currently in place to promote healthy school food in Alberta, as well as inform future activities in this area.
