Since mid-March, parents and educators have been navigating new remote learning opportunities for their children and students, and with the announcement today that schools will remain closed for the rest of this school year, it appears the need for at-home resources isn’t going to slow down any time soon.

Food-based learning is currently top of mind for many, considering how much can be learned at home through gardening, cooking, and other food literacy activities linked to nutrition (eg. healthy eating!) and the environment (eg. compost and food waste)!

In this unprecedented time of school closures, what resources are schools and organizations using to provide food literacy and food-based experiential learning?

Our Ontario Edible Education Network has been compiling a list of resources and activities we encourage you to check out and share with those who might be interested: https://sustainontario.com/work/edible-education/food-literacy-covid-19/
