Student nutrition programs provide healthy meals and snacks to children and youth. The programs aim to educate students to make healthy choices and to encourage children to try new, healthy foods. Studies have shown that proper nutrients and energy lead to enhanced performance in the classroom. Each student nutrition program is unique and a reflection of its community. Our dedicated staff and volunteers operate the program with cooperation and support from Toronto Partners for Student Nutrition, The Angel Foundation, and Toronto Public Health. Student nutrition programs:
  • Support better scores in math, reading and science.
  • Provide nutrients and energy so that students are ready to learn and participate in school.
  • Create healthier eating habits.
  • Help prevent obesity.
Each year, the City of Toronto awards grants to school communities to help them offer a healthy meal or snack to their students. The goal of the grant is to help programs serve healthier foods and operate more days per week. These grants are supplemented by generous contributions from the community.


Student's OEN Number (found on student's report card)

Dear parent/guardian,


As we look ahead to the next school year, the Toronto Student Transportation Group is pleased to announce the launch of the new transportation portal available The transportation portal allows you to look up your child’s transportation information and subscribe to the late bus notification system so that emails are delivered directly to your inbox when the school bus carrier has posted the route as late in the late bus portal. and select the ‘Parent’ link in the top right hand corner of page. From there, you can create an account, look up your child’s specific transportation information, and subscribe to the late bus notification.



For convenience, please find your child’s OEN (Ontario Education Number) on your child's report card. Your child’s OEN is required to authenticate and add your child to your account. You can also find this number on your child’s report card. A step-by-step guide to help you create an account, add your children to your profile, and subscribe to the late bus notification system is available on the portal page.


We hope that you will set up an account and ensure that the information we have on file for your child is accurate. Only students who are registered in the transportation system will be available to be added to your account. If you have received this letter and your child does not use the school bus, please let the school know so your child’s name can be removed from the route roster.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Toronto Student Transportation Group office at 416-394-4BUS (416-394-4287) or at
