Farm to Cafeteria Canada and the Coalition for Healthy School Food, alongside our shared regional partners, are excited to announce the launch of a national Edible Education Community of Practice (CoP)!
We will be hosting an inaugural meeting of this newly established CoP on Wednesday, March 10 at 12 EST, where participants will:
- Be introduced to the Edible Education CoP
- Get to know other edible education & food literacy practitioners across the country
- Contribute to the creation of a set of values & principles for the CoP
- And take a Great Big Crunch for Healthy School Food with others across Canada
The Edible Education CoP will aim to provide a supportive space for those working on Edible Education initiatives (e.g., farm to school programs, land-based learning, school gardens, cooking programs, outdoor education) to connect with, learn from, and collaborate with other practitioners across the country.
This CoP, which is being developed as part of our Farm to School: Canada Digs In! initiative, is intended for school food practitioners who are involved with an Edible Education initiative anywhere in what we now call Canada.
Members may include representatives from community organizations, teachers and school staff, parents and volunteers, and others invested in food education initiatives.
Visit our Edible Education webpage for more information and to register to join us on March 10th for the first meeting! We hope to see you there.
