I attended a great event last night sponsored by a number of corporations that support the work FoodShare organization does. I love how Pattison, one of the sponsors puts it: FoodShare’s Recipe for Change [is about] bringing the gap between school food programs and a future of healthy eating. While going into schools is a big part of their education (I looked them up online and was very impressed with their work) they also look to educating about gardens and more.

The event last night hosted 30 chefs from across Toronto along with local winemakers and beer providers (pair up the amazing food) who offered healthy samples to try. I love food and tried everything. Of course there are things that I liked more but nothing that I didn’t like. One of the schools that FoodShare works with – Culinary students Eastdale Collegiate – created cocktail tartlets filled with curried chicken chutney and cranberries. I loved them. There is nothing like giving our youth the hands-on experience to teach, guide and instil in them they are part of our change in this world! It’s about them so let them be part of the solution of making healthy good choices.

To learn more about food share go to
* connect with them on your favourite social platforms @foodshareTO
* They cater… delight your guests with Field to Table Catering: foodshare.net/program/catering.

While this organization exists in Toronto, learn from them and take it into your own communities. Obesity and disease is on the rise with youth so let’s make this a priority to teach, guide and instil in them the love of healthy choices. Perhaps it is the youth that will teach their older counterparts/parents!
