Whole Kids Foundation

In 2016, Farm to Cafeteria partnered with the Whole Kids Foundation to establish a grant program designed to fuel change in Canadian schools by getting healthy, local, sustainable food on the plates and minds of students. These comprehensive Farm to School grants bring the local harvest to schools by providing school gardens, nutrition education, advocacy training and  salad bars.

In 2017, the Farm to School Canada Grant program became the central pillar of  a panCanadian initiative designed to scale up, evaluate, and share the learnings about these comprehensive programs. Read about  Farm to School Canada Digs In! and the additional schools, new campuses, technical expertise, tools, and evaluation and promotional activities afforded when the F2CC, WKF, the federal government, and multiple NGOs team up to invest in Farm to School.
