The Greenbelt Fund, the Ontario Public Health Association and its Nutrition Resource Centre (NRC), and The Helderleigh Foundation—with Sustain Ontario as an advisory member—are undertaking a research project to understand the current state of local food awareness and food literacy in meal and snack programs targeted to young children in Ontario.

The project is also interested in identifying resources used by or desired by food providers and educators of young children, in order to learn about incorporating healthy local foods in meal/snack programs and food literacy activities for young children and their parents and caregivers.

The NRC is conducting the environmental scan and is interested in finding out about the resources that you may have developed that promote food literacy and healthy local food consumption in young children, specifically resources that target childhood educators, cooks, health intermediaries, children, parents and caregivers.

If you have developed resources for any of these target groups please complete this form as best as possible by September 17, 2018. If you have more than one resource, a link will be provided at the end of the form for any additional resources.

If you have any questions, please contact Kristie Pun at the NRC by email:
