You may have heard that the Nutrition Resource Centre (NRC) has been making some changes to chart a new course for our future. We are excited to let you know that we are officially launching a new centre, new website and new brand to better reflect our direction as a centre for nutrition knowledge and collaboration.

Our new centre and brand has been a collaborative effort from the start, and we couldn’t have done it without your feedback and suggestions, both informally and as part of our stakeholder surveys. We’d like to thank everyone who took the time to send us your thoughts as we move forward with our new direction.

Under our new name, Nutrition Connections, and with the support of our partners The Helderleigh Foundation, we will continue to support health professionals, community organizations, educators, researchers, and others working in food and nutrition to build capacity, connect, and share information. While we continue to provide services in many areas of nutrition and healthy eating, a primary focus of our work going forward will be food literacy.

NC Forum – Healthy and Sustainable Eating…Leading the Shift – Nov 14, 2019, Toronto

This year’s forum will explore the shifts that will be required in eating habits and food choices in order to benefit the health of current and future generations as well as the health of our planet.

The forum will explore what sustainable eating is from a food literacy perspective in order to help health professionals, educators, service providers, and other stakeholders understand how to clearly convey evidence-based messaging and accessible strategies around sustainable eating to their audiences.

We will also be exploring the needed shifts on a broader systems level to better empower individuals to follow a healthy and sustainable eating pattern in their communities.
