Upcoming Workshop December 11, 2019: Healthy Eating for Everyone - Continuing Action for Food Security

This workshop is a follow up to the one we hosted last year Promoting Healthy Eating for Everyone: Taking Action on Food Security, where we shared ideas about how to incorporate healthy eating with a food security lens into project and program planning.

We promised to bring you back to find out what you’ve been up to and to continue the discussion with some fresh ideas under the three themes: local food production; access to healthy food; and education, awareness and food skills. Didn’t attend last year? No problem. New people and new ideas are welcome!
