Resources

Our Nourishing Relations resource page provides a growing list of inspiring stories and “how-to’s” intended to help bring Indigenous foodways into more classrooms and school meal programs. From examples of meal programs incorporating traditional foods, to land-based learning resources, you’ll find content in the form of videos, webinars, guides and stories that share the knowledge and experiences from a variety of people, including Elders and Knowledge Keepers, educators, chefs, students and more!

Map of School Food Programs in Indigenous Communities 

This map was developed in partnership with the Coalition for Healthy School Food to share stories about school food programs in Indigenous communities and for Indigenous students. It allows viewers to access stories in the media and stories that are shared on organizations’ and schools’ websites. Reach out to Christina Smith, Indigenous Lead: Local Food to School at csmith@farmtocafeteriacanada.ca if you’d like to put your program on the map!
