Norman Johnston strives to foster an environment of healthy eating across all areas of the school. Research shows that students who eat well learn better and engage positively in a school community. Norman Johnston received a $50 000 healthy foods grant to help us provide access to healthy foods to our students. The following pillars to our Healthy Eating program increase the access to healthy foods all day long:


Breakfast Program (8:00 - 8:25):

Students have access to a nutritious breakfast every day before classes start. See Val in the Breakfast room!


Office Snacks (all day):

Healthy snacks are available in the front office all day long ranging from Cheerios to homemade granola bars. Ask Val for more details!


Food & Nutrition Courses:

Students in our prepare food using fresh, homegrown produce from our Garden program and provide healthy options to the student body.  Foods students also cater events for school events including BBQs, leadership activities, band performances and graduation. The following credits can be completed at Norman Johnston:
  • HFN1O/2O
  • HFA4C
  • HFC3E
  • HFL4E (linked to NJ’s healthy eating camp)
  • HFA4U
Ask Mark for more details!

Healthy Eating Camp (Annual event):

Norman Johnston runs an annual 2 day Healthy Eating camp at a local outdoor facility. Students learn how to plan, shop, and prepare healthy low cost foods. Students who attend healthy eating camp complete part of an HFL4E credit and can complete the credit by helping with Foods events and completing the additional in-school assignments. See Sally for more information!
