NRC Webinar – Food Literacy in Indigenous Communities in Ontario
May 11, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Promoting food literacy enables healthy eating and may help reduce the burden of chronic diseases among Ontario’s Indigenous peoples. Since food and culture are intrinsically linked, community food literacy programming may also promote Indigenous identity, self-esteem, social bonding and other benefits beyond providing good nutrition. In this webinar, you will hear about different kinds of community food literacy programs that are currently operating in Ontario. You will also learn about program content, logistics, barriers, evaluation and recommendations for running your own food literacy program among Indigenous peoples.
