TORONTO - Ontario's governing Liberals plan to spend $32 million over three years to give 56,000 more students access to school nutrition programs, Premier Kathleen Wynne said Tuesday.
Some children ask their teachers when they arrive at school what's going to be served, she said from a Toronto school.
"They're waiting for that snack that morning, maybe their only breakfast that they get," Wynne said.
"And so it's a really important program because we know that kids can't focus if they're hungry."
