School Food Animators

The Alberta School Food Animators support the implementation of a farm-to-school food initiative in the Peace Region of Alberta. The Community School Food Animators help build capacity among participating schools and the local communities to improve school food programs using a farm-to-school approach.

We understand that equitable, effective, and sustainable solutions to healthy food are achieved when the local community is actively engaged in the development and implementation of local food systems. As such, the Animator is critical to facilitating, engaging, and strengthening connections within the school community and a variety of stakeholders that influence local school food environments. This includes promoting healthy, local food in schools, enhancing student food literacy, fostering hands-on learning opportunities connected to the school curriculum, and supporting schools and local community food connectedness.

What are we up to?
