Across Ontario people are doing great work to connect children and youth with good food*. The Ontario Edible Education Network has been established to bring these groups together to share resources, ideas, and experience, to work together on advocacy, and to make it easier for people across Ontario to get children and youth eating, growing, cooking, celebrating, and learning about healthy, local and sustainably produced food.

Check out some exciting stories about the spaces, places and ideas across the province that are changing what kids eat.

The Coalition for Healthy School Food is a network of over 100 organizations from across Canada advocating for a national school food program. (The network is coordinated by Food Secure Canada). The Coalition is seeking an investment by the federal government in a cost-shared Universal Healthy School Food Program that will enable all students in Canada to have access to healthy meals at school every day.

Papers developed and discussed at Bring Food Home 2017:


* Good food is nourishing and is grown, processed and prepared in a way that respects producers, consumers, communities and the earth. The concept of “good food” recognizes that food passes through a food system (from seed to plate and back to the earth) that involves multiple relationships and interactions between people, animals, and environmental systems. It therefore has deep regard for human dignity and health, animal welfare, social justice and environmental sustainability.
