Food Expectations


When you come to B.C., you may find the food quite different from what you are used to. Talk to your host family about foods you like and foods you don’t like. However, food is an important part of any culture and you should be prepared to try what your homestay family eats.

Although it is not the same for all families, breakfast is often a lighter meal, lunch is packed at home and taken to school, and dinner is the main meal, and the largest meal, of the day.

You may be expected to prepare your own breakfast, and possibly pack your own lunch for school each day.
