Actu- Farm to school month

This October: Celebrate healthy, local food and earn the chance to win $1,500 

Équiterre and Farm to School Quebec are proud to promote Farm to School Month, a Canada-wide event organized by Farm to Cafeteria Canada. Partners in the pre-school, school and campus communities (daycares, schools, after-school services, colleges, universities) are invited to join the Farm to School movement by sharing their activities promoting healthy eating and local and sustainable food.

Whether you decide to create a vegetable or herb garden, dig up some pumpkins or try out new recipes, let yourself be guided by this year’s theme, “Canada Digs In,” aimed at helping educate young people about where their food comes from and the joys of eating healthy.

Tell us about your projects and earn the chance to win one of three grants worth $1,500. The activities submitted will then be widely shared in order to inspire similar projects across the country.

How to participate
