About the Map

Changing the menu, mapping the change

Created in 2015, the Farm to School Map is a self-reported, real-time tool, intended to provide a snapshot of the breadth, depth – and impact – of Farm to School activities happening across Canada. The information collected through registration is used by Farm to Cafeteria Canada and its partners to inform strategic planning in order to grow and better support Farm to School initiatives nationwide.

Registration takes approximately 10-20 minutes to complete, depending on the level of detail you’re able to provide. Schools, campuses and programs who are engaging youth (from preschool to campus) in hands-on learning using a Farm to School Approach are welcomed and encouraged to register. Please submit only one response per school, campus or program.
