Are you interested in learning how school food programs are engaging their students in food forests and growing food on the land? Check out this recording from the Indigenous School Food Circle’s May 2nd webinar:

In this webinar, speakers shared how they established their programs, what they set out to do, how the program has supported their students and their broader community, and tips for those who want to involve their students and school community in growing food.

Thanks to the following speakers who shared their experiences:

  • Jennifer Cameron & Kristen Schott, Beardys Okemasis First Nation
  • Lisa Troy, Kamloops Food Policy Council


The Indigenous School Food Circle is an initiative co-hosted by the Coalition for Healthy School Food, Canadian Feed the Children and Farm to Cafeteria Canada that has been established to inform advocacy for funding for school food programs in Indigenous communities and for Indigenous students, and to support replication, networking and sharing of best practices among those who are coordinating and supporting school food programs in Indigenous communities and for Indigenous students.
