Cultivating Change: Antiracist principles in school food & Indigenous-led school food programs

From November 12-18th, Food Secure Canada’s online gathering, Cultivating Change, presented a rich program of events that looked at the intersections between food systems, anti-racism, decolonization and environmental justice movements. 

As part of the event the Coalition for Healthy School Food hosted two important conversations: one on showcasing Indigenous-led school food programs, and one on embedding anti-racist principles in school food. 

The event on November 13th looked at how we can embed anti-racist principles in school food programming, with a panel that shared insights from their experiences with school meal programs, school gardens and school food literacy programs.

And the event on November 17th gave attendees the opportunity to learn from four school food providers who are bringing Indigenous Food Sovereignty to the forefront of their programs:

Access a summary of the Embedding Anti-Racist Principles in School Food Programming and Lessons from Indigenous-led School Food Programs webinars and links to the recordings on the Coalition’s website.
