FSC logo election Eat-Think-Vote-blueCelebrate Canada’s 2nd annual Farm to School Month! Sustain will be at Evergreen Brickworks’ Saturday morning farmers’ market for a Market Intervention discussion about National Farm to School Month. We’re excited to talk about the benefits of good food education in schools, and to encourage listeners to #EatThinkVote on October 19th with a national school food program in mind!

For the second year in a row, healthy school food advocates and educators will be sharing inspiration and celebrating the progress of school food programs that connect children and youth with healthy, fresh food. Two winners that caught our attention in the 2013 Ontario Farm to School (F2S) Challenge, will share their incredible educational programs. Two Ontario educators will present their inspiring food programs. Hear their success stories in their 20 minute presentations:
