The Farm to School approach (F2S) aims to transform food systems by bringing more healthy, local and sustainable food to the minds and plates of students. F2S is aligned with several UN Sustainable Development Goals, the new Canada’s Food Guide recommendations and the vision for a Food Policy for Canada.
In light of its benefits, the theme of Farm to School Month 2019 was Healthy People, Healthy Planet!
The list of resources, including short inspirational videos, comprehensive toolkits, and hands-on activities was compiled as part of the 2019 Farm to School Month celebration, in order to engage and empower students in learning and taking action.
