Foodshare

 

 

FoodShare Toronto is cooking up a Recipe for Change: reminding children what food is and where it comes from, teaching that healthy food also tastes good, and helping them to choose it for themselves. After many years of mapping curriculum connections to food and the environment and creating innovative workshops, tools and resources for teachers and students in the Field to Table Schools program, FoodShare Toronto is taking this work to a new level, leading the charge to embed food education – along with healthy active lifestyles and environmental values – in the Ontario curriculum and make food literacy a requirement of graduation for our students.

 

Recipe for Change will take FoodShare’s vision for students to new heights: a healthy cafeteria in every school, and all students being taught to cook, garden and compost throughout all the subject areas.
