Learn from others, share your progress and challenges in creating healthy food environments and incorporating food literacy into everyday student life & curricula.
Keynote: Carley Shelck
Carley is dedicated to bringing healthy wholesome and from-scratch foods to institutional settings as demonstrated in her work at St. Paul's University, the Parkdale Food Centre and her son's school where she is helping set up a garden and supporting teachers to introduce food literacy into their classrooms. For more about Carley read this story about her from Edible Ottawa.
Additional speakers, workshops and panel discussions will cover topics such as: indoor and outdoor gardening, the provincial Bright Bites! program, transforming cafeterias, farm-to school programs, healthy food fundraisers, and how to create school environments that foster positive body image/self-esteem, healthy eating and physical activity.
If you have developed a food literacy or healthy food program in a school and would like to share your experience - please let us know - we are still developing the day's program.
