Schools

FoodShare takes a multi-faceted approach to school food leading a movement of change in the way children and youth eat and learn. We created the model for Student Nutrition Programs, and in partnership with school boards, Toronto Public Health, and community agencies provide grassroots organizing for more than 700 universal programs helping feed 148,000 students daily. Field to Table Schools works with educators, parents, and students from JK through Grade 12, to implement hands-on cooking and gardening activities with the goal of making food literacy a requirement of graduation, and our Baby and Toddler Nutrition program provides training for caregivers in 8 languages. Our School Grown gardens create spaces where students plant, harvest, prepare, cook, eat and sell produce, gaining summer employment and agriculture and workplace skills. Our Fresh Produce Program for Schools provides access to affordable bulk vegetables and fruit, and our Good Food Café demonstrates that children will choose healthy affordable foods in a cafeteria.
