dc.description.abstract Purpose: To access long-term sustainability of Manitoba SBP by examining the beliefs, attitudes and values of the diverse stakeholders involved in ensuring that SBP run. Sample/ Setting: Eighteen participants from the public school system, government departments and private funders in Manitoba. Method: Semi structured interviews to explore the perceptions, attitudes, and experiences of participants. Results: The perceived impact of SBP varied between each group of stakeholders though all shared a common belief that SBPs were beneficial to students. Major barriers identified were related to funding and manpower. Conclusion: All stakeholders support SBP because they understand and value the positive health, educational and social benefits SBP have for students and the wider school community. Long-term sustainability of SBP depends on creating and maintaining a positive policy environment in which SBP are seen as a valuable tool in supporting child nutrition so that funding and resources are allocated appropriately. en_US
