Student Nutrition Access Program
The Student Nutrition Access Program (SNAP) strives to provide support on the health and wellness needs of George Brown College students through programs that activate health and wellness to support student health, emotional and social well-being.
We also provide resources, such as information on food banks, government programs, mental health and employment support.
We educate students about nutrition to learn the basics of preparing nutritious food that meets the nutrition guidelines, how to read nutrition labels, nutrition strategies to boost your immune system and provide information and resources on how to manage stress through diet, nutrition and a healthy lifestyle.
Sample SNAP services:
SNAP Resource Centre: A safe space for students to hang out, socialize and obtain information and resources on nutrition, food banks and government programs.
SNAP Food Pantry: Access to nutritious food and meals available for GBC students. Non-perishables, perishables and fresh produce available.
Good Food Market: Low-cost fresh fruit and vegetables available to all students.
Community Garden: Learn about gardening and sustainability.
SNAP Social Eats: Learn how to cook and develop skills in budgeting, reading recipes, meal planning, health and nutrition while socializing with fellow students.
