Changing the Menu, Mapping the Change – National School Food Map Registration Form

Changing the Menu, Mapping the Change

Put Your School on the Map!

There is an exciting movement underway to get more healthy local foods into the minds and onto the plates of Canadian students. Gardens, greenhouses, farms, farmers markets, local food salad bars, and composting programs are sprouting up in preschools, schools, after school programs, and campuses across the country. More than ever, schools are sourcing and procuring healthy foods from local producers.

Farm to Cafeteria Canada seeks your help to shine a spotlight on these activities. We are creating the first national map of the school food activities across Canada. By registering your school’s food activity, you will help inform strategic planning that will enable Farm to Cafeteria Canada to better support these activities nationwide.The registration form will take around 10-20 minutes to complete. We would like to receive one response per school. You may work with others to complete this form on behalf of your school.
