Pathways to Healthy, Local and Sustainable Food in our Institutions
Date: January 11, 2017 10am – 3pm (Snow date: January 25, 2017)
Location: Mount Saint Vincent University Seton Lounge Room 404/405
Growing procurement of fresh, healthy, locally produced, sustainable food in our schools,universities, health care facilities, and daycares in Nova Scotia, builds healthy communities with healthy local economies. How can we support each other in the work we are already doing and plant new seeds for big ideas and further impact?
Please join us for a day of sharing and learning together amongst those actively engaged in and championing this work. This will be an interactive workshop in which participants will share stories, strategies, challenges and practical advice on shifting institutional food practices, procurement and public dollars to focus on fresh, healthy, local and sustainable food.
