Description

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF DATE TO MARCH 7TH


The Table Community Food Centre is pleased to invite you to our 3rd annual Good Food In Schools Forum for Leeds, Grenville and Lanark!

Save the date for this great event for parents, educators, food producers and anyone working and living with youth and children who want to support good food initiatives in our area schools and other community centres. We will discuss the many ways we can support one another as we seek to increase our capacity to provide fresh, nutritious food in our area schools and increase outdoor and garden centred learning opportunities. Among other subjects we will be joined by many professionals and community members to share and learn from their experience in the following:

-healthy lunch and snacking programs

-implementation and planning of school food gardens and classroom centred learning as well as ideas for indoor classroom growing

-best practices and ideas on care and support for gardens in our schools

-how to incorporate outdoor learning into our Ontario School Curriculum

Plus many more engaging conversations on how we can invest more time and efforts into creating and incorporating the best food and learning opportunities in our communities and those which help our young people to sprout and thrive as they become food literate young adults.

If you are wishing to attend the event and would like to bring your child(ren), we will be set up for child minding so please indicate this to the organizers if you have children who will be joining the event

List of speakers TBA, but please reserve your ticket today! There is a suggested donation, but please pay what/if you are able to and join us for these lively and inspiring conversations. There are two options for registration Pay What You Can, which also offers the option to register free, and Pay at The Door which is set at $0.
