In Quebec, the buzz surrounding local food is growing, not only among citizens and institutions, but also within the provincial government. The province has been promoting healthy, local and sustainable food in public institutions for several years.
In 2018, nine Quebec schools received grants of up to $10,000 as part of the Farm to School: Canada Digs In! (F2SCDI) Initiative. Read how these schools brought in healthy and local food, provided hands-on learning and connected with their communities. The results from the first cohort of grantees offer inspiration for other schools looking to increase their local food purchases and contribute to more resilient and sustainable local food systems.
