The Indigenous School Food Circle is pleased to host a webinar on how school food programs are engaging their students in food forests and growing food on the land. Our speakers will share how they’ve established their programs, what they set out to do, how the program has supported their students and their broader community, and any tips that they’d offer to others who want to involve their students and school community in growing food.
We are pleased to have the following speakers share their experiences:
Jennifer Cameron & Kristen Schott, Beardys Okemasis First Nation
Lisa Troy, Kamloops Food Policy Council
Tim Tomczynski, Hamlet of Tulita NWT
This event will take the format of a 1.5-hour conversation among the panelists, with time for questions from participants and discussion. The conversation will be recorded and publicly shared afterwards.
The Indigenous School Food Circle is an initiative co-hosted by the Coalition for Healthy School Food, Canadian Feed the Children and Farm to Cafeteria Canada that has been established to inform advocacy for funding for school food programs in Indigenous communities and for Indigenous students and to support replication, networking and sharing of best practices among those who are coordinating and supporting school food programs in Indigenous communities and for Indigenous students.
