Farm to Cafeteria Canada, Whole Kids Foundation, and Farm To School BC are working together to offer up to $10,000 for BC schools to build on your efforts to increase access to healthy local food for students through a salad bar program. In addition it will provide student opportunities for hands-on learning through gardening, cooking and preserving. The grant application deadline is March 15, 2016. This workshop will provide support and guidance for Vancouver elementary and secondary school staff who are interested in writing a proposal to pursue this grant opportunity. Interested schools are strongly encouraged to contact Ron Macdonald, Energy and Sustainability Manager, at rmacdonald@vsb.bc.ca to discuss their application well in advance of submission.
