This program is set out for the Francophone and Anglophone primary schools of northwestern New Brunswick, but we encourage everyone from all over the world to consult our vast array of online resources and start packing a zero-waste and healthy lunch box and snack today.

This website features fun and dynamic educational videos in its “Animation Corner”, suggestions of activities in its “Activities Corner”, as well as promotional tools such as posters, banners and promotional items in its “Resources Corner”.
