To create healthier food environments across Ontario by sharing knowledge, resources and tools to build capacity for research, policy and action at the local community level among health promotion professionals and community partners.
The vision for the day is to be participatory and interactive to ensure you will be able to apply the knowledge and skills gained in your own community. Be prepared to be open to sharing your experiences and to learn from others. Participants will also “sleuth the food environment” by taking a field trip to a nearby retail food outlet to assess the health of the local food environment.
