About Us

The Ottawa School Food Network is a collaboration of multiple non-profit agencies and community initiatives working to increase Food Literacy and Good Food Experiential Learning within schools, city-wide: ottawaschoolfood.ca

Our vision is to ensure high food literacy for kids, youth and adults in schools.

How?

  • Provide practical food experiences students can replicate at home and in their communities
  • Teach students about where food comes from, what food insecurity is and what to do about it
  • Grow food indoors and outdoors, meet local farmers and cook whole foods
  • Showcase food career choices to create more resilient communities in the future
  • Connecting students to essential tools needed to thrive, promoting health and wealth for both our future generations and our planet.
