On September 30th, Sustain Ontario’s Carolyn Webb was featured on the Food for the Future podcast to speak about the need for a national school food program.

Earlier in the month the show also featured Alicia Martin, PhD student at Guelph University and co-author of Sustain Ontario’s policy brief to inform Bill 216 – Food Literacy for Students Act, 2020. Alicia spoke about innovative research on mandatory food system literacy in public education for Grades 1-12.

Food for the Future, hosted by Peggy O’Neil, is a hope-inspiring show that brings the Humanities to today’s food dialogue, by showcasing everyday people trying to make a difference across the country.

Food for the Future shares encouraging stories from family farmers, “big thinkers”, conservationists, and artisans who dedicate their lives to growing a brighter future in their communities and our world through “food for thought”, innovation, agri-food traditions, and leadership. These stories include themes such as community-supported agriculture, youth leadership, and food literacy.
