Teaching about Food and Nutrition

FIND RESOURCES ABOUT: Teaching about diabetes, how to read food labels, how to nourish oneself with low cost/food bank foods, engaging youth in food system issues, teaching youth cooking classes, and much more.

DISCLAIMER: We acknowledge that some of these resources may no longer be in alignment with our Food Matters Manitoba Guiding Statement. In the interest of supporting all people with information they might find helpful, we’ve chosen to retain all these existing resources while we work to get it right. We ask for your patience while we find new ways of packaging these documents in a harm-reduction-oriented manner.
