Heroes’ Memorial School, Cowansville, Québec
2020-2022 (Grant Year 2)
This anglophone elementary school, located in Cowansville in the Montérégie region, is going above and beyond to enable relationships between students, families and the school community. The entire community is involved in projects such as culinary workshops, visits to neighbouring farms, fundraising activities and garden maintenance.
The project allows the students to prepare delicious meals for parents and school staff at their ‘Cooking Event’. This presents itself as a strong learning opportunity as the students are involved in all aspects of the project, from choosing recipes, creating posters, selling tickets, decorating the hall, to preparing and serving the food.
Thus, the support of the Farm to School grant has allowed the existing salad bar project to evolve into a bigger and more diverse project that continues to do good for the community.
