Farm to Cafeteria Canada and Food First NL have just released a new Farm to School Learning Circles Guide that aims to further Farm to School (F2S) efforts across Canada.

The guide is primarily intended to support the work of local and regional F2S coordinators in increasing the availability of healthy, local and sustainable food to children and youth, but anyone interested in taking F2S action may also benefit from learning about a F2S Learning Circle.

“The aim of the Learning Lab or Learning Circle is to help ensure that local, healthy foods are on the minds and plates of students by bringing key people together in a well-facilitated, supportive environment to share ideas, develop common goals and collaborate on actions aimed at systems change,” shares Joanne Bays, National Director Farm to Cafeteria Canada. “Within this context, each Learning Lab determines its own focus and priorities aimed at addressing barriers and building capacity to achieve the vision outlined above.”
