Serving Traditional Indigenous Food in Schools Webinar | Wednesday, October 12

The Indigenous School Food Circle is hosting a webinar on how school food programs are serving traditional Indigenous foods. Speakers will share how they’ve brought traditional foods into schools, how they’ve been able to incorporate traditional game and seafood, and any tips that they would offer to other school communities who want to bring traditional foods into their school food programs.

This event will take the format of a 1.5 hour facilitated conversation among the panelists followed by time for questions from participants and discussion. The conversation will be recorded and publicly shared afterwards. Register here.
