KEYNOTE - Raising Whole Young People is Like Raising Good Food: Educating our Children for a Sustainable World / Élever les jeunes, c’est comme cultiver de la bonne nourriture
“Michael Ableman has a finely honed sensibility…. he gardens society, grows well-being, weeds out despair, and sows hope” - Paul Hawken.

Speaking as a farmer, father, student, and teacher, Michael Ableman takes us on a journey through fields and farms, classrooms and kitchens exploring a deeper soulful nourishment based on local, biological, interpersonal, and ecological relationships. Michael’s stories go beyond concepts, abstractions, or prescriptions, into real life lessons and inspirations that come from a life on the land lived with open eyes and an open heart.

« Michael Ableman possède une sensibilité d’une grande finesse…. il cultive la société, alimente le bien-être, arrache le désespoir et sème l’espérance. » Paul Hawken (traduction)

En compagnie de Michael Ableman – agriculteur, père de famille, étudiant et enseignant – nous explorerons les champs et les fermes, les salles de classe et les cuisines, à la recherche d’une alimentation qui nourrit le corps et l’âme, une alimentation fondée sur les relations locales, biologiques, interpersonnelles et écologiques. Les histoires de Michael vont au-delà des concepts, des idées abstraites ou des prescriptions : ce sont les leçons de vie et les sources d’inspiration d’un homme qui vit de la terre, avec les yeux et le cœur grand ouverts.

From Policy to Action, Farm to School: Canada Digs In!
Theme - Farm to Cafeteria Promising Practices
Farm to School: Canada Digs In! (F2SCDI) is a pan-Canadian initiative that is bringing more healthy, local and sustainable foods into the minds and onto the plates of students. This multi-sectoral partnership brings federal and provincial governments, NGOs and the private sector together to invest in an initiative that is breathing life into health, education, agriculture, and policy aims. One of the most visible aspects of F2SCDI has been the Farm to School Canada Grants program. To date, more than $1M has been delivered to schools across Canada in the form of grants and training to bring more of the local harvest into school salad bars. In this session, four grantees, including students, will share a diversity of program models along with their successes, challenges, and learnings.

Thème – Pratiques prometteuses De la ferme à la cafétéria
De la ferme à l’école : le Canada, une terre fertile! est une initiative pancanadienne conçue pour accroître la présence d’aliments sains, locaux et durables dans l’esprit et dans l’assiette des élèves et des étudiants. Dans le cadre de ce partenariat multisectoriel, des gouvernements (fédéral et provinciaux), des ONG et des entreprises privées investissent dans une initiative qui donne corps à plusieurs objectifs de santé, d’éducation, d’agriculture et d’élaboration de politiques. Les subventions De la ferme à l’école figurent parmi les aspects les plus visibles de cette initiative. À ce jour, plus d’un million de dollars ont été consentis à des écoles partout au Canada sous la forme de subventions et de formations destinées à instaurer une alimentation locale dans les écoles au moyen de buffets à salade. Lors de cette séance, les représentants de quatre écoles subventionnées parleront de divers modèles de programmes ainsi que de leurs réussites, défis et apprentissages.

Lessons from Brazil's National (Local) School Meal Program / Leçons tirées du programme national de repas scolaires locaux du Brésil
Brazil spends $1.3 billion per year on its national student nutrition program, and mandates at least 30 percent of food purchased for it come from small family farmers. In 2016, journalist Colleen Kimmett reported on how the program is playing out in cities across Brazil. Colleen's presentation will compare two case studies to demonstrate where the program has succeeded and faltered, and the roles small farmers, public health workers, and school administrators have played. As Canada grapples with how to launch its own national student meal program, Brazil offers important lessons. The presentation will be followed by Q&A and discussion.
---
Le Brésil dépense 1,3 milliard de dollars par année sur son programme national de nutrition scolaire et oblige les écoles à acheter au moins 30 % des aliments nécessaires au programme auprès de petites exploitations agricoles familiales. En 2016, la journaliste Colleen Kimmett a fait un reportage sur le déroulement de ce programme dans les villes du Brésil. Lors de sa présentation, Colleen comparera deux études de cas pour démontrer les réussites et les échecs du programme, ainsi que les rôles joués par les petits agriculteurs, les intervenants en santé publique et les administrateurs scolaires. En cette période où le Canada essaie de déterminer comment lancer son propre programme national de repas scolaires, le Brésil nous offre des leçons importantes. Cette présentation sera suivie d’une période de questions et de discussion.

Evaluation for Transformation: Perspectives from Canada and the US / Évaluer pour transformer
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.

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.

  • How a partnership in Southwestern Ontario developed a regional fruit and vegetable delivery program that is servicing over 150 schools while offering access to local food and local food education. 
  • The learnings from Meal Exchange’s pilot study to explore the perceived barriers that small-scale farmers view as limiting their ability to engage with and create direct partnerships with publicly-funded institutions such as K-12 schools and post-secondary institutions.
  • About a collaborative project to better communicate sustainable grown,  made-in Canada agriculture and products.

  • une étude pilote de Meal Exchange qui explore ce que les petits agriculteurs perçoivent comme étant des obstacles limitant leur capacité à établir et à cultiver des partenariats directs avec les établissements subventionnés par l’État, dont les écoles, les universités et les collèges;
    un projet de collaboration qui vise à améliorer la communication sur les produits cultivés et fabriqués de façon durable au Canada.

Towards a National School Food Strategy / Vers une stratégie nationale d’alimentation scolaire
Theme: Sustaining the momentum: advocating for change
Celebrating the first-ever commitment to a National School Food Program in the recent federal budget, this interactive, action-orientated workshop will explore next steps to ensure that the best possible program is developed and funded in Canada, and how it can be complemented and supported by initiatives of F2S and others working across the country. Debbie Field, Coalition for Healthy School Food Coordinator, and other Coalition members will provide an overview of their efforts to date, and why they believe the federal government decided to join other G7 and most countries in the world in supporting school food. In addition, they will share details of the campaign, #NourishKidsNow- Invest in School Food.

The Coalition, a group of over 56 organizations from across Canada, is seeking an investment by the federal government in a cost-shared Universal Healthy School Food Program which will build on existing programs across the country. Its vision is for all schools to eventually serve a healthy meal or snack at little or no cost to students, enabling all students to have access to healthy meals at school every day.

Thème : Maintenir l’impulsion, promouvoir le changement
En guise de célébration du tout premier engagement envers un programme national d’alimentation scolaire dans le récent budget fédéral, cet atelier interactif orienté action permettra aux participants d’explorer les prochaines étapes à suivre pour assurer la mise en place et le financement du meilleur programme possible au Canada. On explorera aussi les mesures à prendre pour mettre à contribution les initiatives De la ferme à l’école et des autres organismes qui interviennent dans ce dossier au Canada. Debbie Field, coordonnatrice de la Coalition pour une saine alimentation scolaire, et d’autres membres de la Coalition donneront un aperçu des efforts déployés à ce jour et expliqueront les raisons pour lesquelles, selon eux, le gouvernement fédéral a décidé de se joindre aux autres pays du G7 et à la plupart des pays du monde pour appuyer l’alimentation scolaire. Ils parleront également de la campagne #NourrissonsNosJeunes – Investissons en alimentation scolaire.

La Coalition, qui regroupe 56 organismes de partout au Canada, demande au gouvernement fédéral de créer un programme universel de saine alimentation scolaire, à coût partagé, s'appuyant sur les investissements déjà existants partout au pays. Elle veut que toutes les écoles puissent un jour servir aux élèves, gratuitement ou à un prix modique, des collations ou des repas santé. C’est ainsi que tous les jeunes auront accès à des repas sains à l’école tous les jours.
