Snacks on sale in schools
In many of our schools, schoolchildren can buy a healthy and varied snack. A snack is offered when there are ten or more buyers. The length of the students’ school day determines how many days a week a snack is on sale. The snack will help you cope with the last hours of the afternoon as well as your after-school hobbies. Snacks are often sold in the school canteen at two o’clock. The prices for snacks are 0.50€ - 2.00€. For example, fruit, yoghurts, stuffed rolls, etc. are sold as snacks. You can find a list of schools that sell snacks on the city's website.
In many of our schools, snacks are paid with a city card, which you can redeem at Vantaa Info locations. It is a good idea to print the city card application form on the city's website before applying for the card; if necessary, you can also get the form from Vantaa Info. A few schools use other payment methods. Check with your school snack vendor for your school’s practices.
