Farm to Cafeteria Canada has released a new Farm to School: Canada Digs In! Report for 2022.

Building on the 2020 report, the new interactive report celebrates the champions who made Canada Digs In! possible, provides links to practical resources developed along the way, and showcases the project’s impacts.

The goal of Canada Digs In! has been to scale up Canada’s farm to school movement and enable students to develop the life-long knowledge, skills, and habits to support their wellbeing, their communities, and the planet.

The project has worked to:

  • Implement farm to school programs across Canada in elementary, middle, and secondary schools through the Farm to School Canada Grants program, and on campuses through the Good Food Challenge.
  • Build capacity among school communities and project partners by providing training, resources, and knowledge-sharing activities.
  • Evaluate the initiative, providing the first-ever empirical evidence of the impacts of farm to school in Canada as well as a framework for consistently evaluating this work.

The new report offers a valuable Resource Centre, with a ton of videos, webinar recordings, toolkits, case studies and other resources that answer the most common questions on a range of farm to school themes.
