Date: Nov 15, 2018 @ 08:30AM - 04:30PM

Location: Chestnut Conference Centre, Toronto

Read our 2018 Forum e-Book (PDF), featuring all the day’s highlights!

Increasing food literacy is an important health promotion strategy to enable healthy eating and may help reduce the burden of obesity and chronic disease. Growing concerns about unhealthy eating habits, including consuming too many processed food and beverages and the lack of food literacy in children, youth and adults has inspired the theme for our annual forum this year to focus on “Unpacking Food Literacy”.

At this event, you will learn:

  • how food literacy is defined and its components
  • the current state of food literacy and what programming is happening in Ontario and beyond
  • the latest research and strategies to impact and evaluate behaviour change through food literacy programs, policies and interventions

Join us as we bring together health professionals, service providers, educators, students, researchers, government decision makers and other food literacy champions to showcase innovative programs and initiatives, and to share the latest research, resources and tools to ultimately help consumers make healthier food choices.
