Theme: The Evidence Is In - measuring and reporting impact
Farm to School is bigger than what kids eat for lunch. It is about healthy students and strong communities fostering resilient and sustainable regional food systems.

Canada has come a long way in a few short years to realize this vision. We have much to celebrate, and we have big ideas to further our efforts. But how do we communicate our success? What can we learn from national leaders who are on this journey? To what extent has a strong vision, a clear framework for evaluation helped to propel work forward? This moderated panel session will address these questions and present concepts for next steps.

Thème: Les preuves sont faites - Mesurer et communiquer l’incidence
Le mouvement De la ferme à l’école ne se résume pas à ce que les enfants mangent pour le dîner : c’est un mouvement qui favorise la santé des jeunes tout en créant des collectivités fortes et des systèmes alimentaires régionaux résilients et durables.

Le Canada a réalisé d’énormes progrès en quelques années seulement pour réaliser cette vision. Nous avons maintes raisons pour célébrer et nous avons de grandes idées pour poursuivre nos efforts. Mais comment y parviendrons-nous? Que peuvent nous enseigner les chefs de file nationaux qui suivent ce parcours? Dans quelle mesure une vision claire, un cadre d’action national et l’évaluation ont-ils propulsé notre mission? Lors de cette séance dirigée, nous aborderons ces questions et nous présenterons des concepts pour orienter les prochaines étapes.
