Between September 2016 and June 2020, 86 schools and 10 campuses participated in the Canada Digs In! initiative. Schools received grants of up to $10,000 to deliver farm to school salad bar programs. Students ate local and healthy food, participated in hands-on food literacy activities and connected with local food providers, growers, chefs, knowledge keepers, public health professionals and many other community partners.
The Canada Digs In! report is much more than a look back. It tells the story of a collaborative effort to grow farm to school in Canada over the past three years, with many exciting milestones along the way.
