As part of a national project with the Farm to Cafeteria Canada network, Équiterre is inviting teachers, food service managers and school stakeholders to attend a free webinar on Wednesday, October 11 from 3 pm to 4 pm .

The objective of the project is to increase the consumption of local fruits and vegetables by young people in schools in the country by carrying out educational activities and promoting local supply. The presence of salad bars and raw vegetables in the schools has proved to be an effective means of achieving this goal. This webinar will be an opportunity to discover and learn from these good practices.

  • Explore inspiring initiatives by Canadian schools, including the establishment of salad bars, how they work, the success factors and the challenges faced;
  • Explore the funding opportunities available to schools in the coming year.
  • Josée Bernier, Director, Notre-Dame School, New Brunswick
