Throughout 2022 Farm to Cafeteria Canada, in partnership with the Coalition for Healthy School Food, has worked to revise its School Food Map to:
We’re excited to share the revised map! And now it’s your turn – take 10 minutes to get on the map and invite other schools, organizations and other champions who are involved with school food to get on it too.
Our original map had been collecting self-reported data on farm to school activities in Canada since 2014 and we’re excited to refresh it to reflect the current needs of the movement. Please note that we have NOT transferred the information from the previous map because of a significant difference in data and because much of the information was out of date. If you represent a school that was on the previous map we’ll need you to register again BUT we’ve streamlined the process and so it shouldn’t take long to get yourself on the map again.
While F2CC hosts this map, it’s a tool meant for anyone who’s passionate about transforming how food is experienced, learned and celebrated at school. We are working to make it so that the map can be embedded on other sites so that it can be widely used and shared.
Thank you to all of you who provided feedback in the development and testing stages of the new and improved map, including informing what features the map should have! We hope that it meets your needs and supports our mutual goals of networking and understanding the school food activity happening across the country. Note that you will still see a few more updates and small changes in the weeks ahead as we work to finalize it and make it as useful and user-friendly as possible.
