You’ve seen in our 2020 Canada Digs In! Report that farm to school programs support public health, community economic development, education & learning, and community connections.
Now hear about these impacts firsthand in our Impact Videos! 

In these 11 videos, 7 in English and 4 in French, we hear from our farm to school grantees including teachers, parents, public health professionals, and community partners, who share some of the positive short and long-term impacts they are seeing from serving healthy food in schools and engaging students in food education. 

These videos share stories about students’ excitement for the salad bar, how the salad bar increases access to good food and vegetable consumption, how it improves student behaviour and learning, how it creates a sense of community, great cross-curricular connections, and how farm to school even inspires students’ future paths in life! 

Watch them here:
Lori Furfaro from College Heights Secondary School in Guelph, Ontario:

Derek Brez from Sir Guy Carleton Secondary School in Ottawa, Ontario:

Patrick Gale from Edward Milne Community School in Sooke, BC:

Alan Macdonald from Loughborough Public School in Sydenham, Ontario:

Aileen Collier from Waterloo Elementary School in Waterloo, Quebec: 

Shiba Anjum from Oakwood Public School in Oakville, Ontario: 

Brent Mansfield from Lord Roberts Elementary School in Vancouver, BC: 

“This is where food is such a powerful tool,” Brent Mansfield shares, “where we can give students the opportunity to feel competent and confident, and have some level of mastery and pride, I think is just going to be such a transformational thing.”
