Who We Are
Here’s the situation: our cafeterias are closing - in 2011, they closed 32 in Toronto. They passed a law to put healthy food in cafeterias, and then no one went. Why? Well, that’s what we need to figure out. What we do know is that there are a lot of people who are suffering from their poor diets.
Something’s got to change.
That’s why the TDSB and the Toronto Education Workers started My Food My Way. The idea is simple: as part of the Healthy Learning Healthy Living initiative, we need to get people to eat better. But to do this, we have to approach nutrition differently.
Our goal is to change the culture of food in Toronto’s homes, schools and communities. And we know we can’t do that by saying eat this and don’t eat that. No one likes being told what to do. So no, we’re not going to send Gordon Ramsay to your home to yell at you.
What we want is to transform the experience of food through things like design, technology, music, celebrity culture, competitions and go-to events. We’re going to educate and empower young people so they can make healthy choices and make positive changes for themselves.
