Canadian School of Natural Nutrition Sponsorship Profile

Thursday, January 18, 2018

The Canadian School of Natural Nutrition has partnered with Growing Chefs! Ontario and has become an active supporter in our pursuit of a healthy and vital community. CSNN's principles are founded in the philosophy that food is medicine and are focused on preventive and proactive health care through good nutrition. The high quality education they deliver aims to empower; providing lasting careers for their students and optimizing the health of our community. CSNN believes "wholesome food remains one of the most essential elements of health and wellness" and we couldn't agree more! We thank you for your generous sponsorship! 

We spoke to branch manager, Joni L. Yungblut, R.H.N., about the importance of nutrition and food education. Read our interview below:

Why did you choose to sponsor Growing Chefs?

Growing Chefs has always been on my radar as a great business that is in line with our holistic values. We believe it’s the utmost importance to teach children and our youth in general how to grow their own food and cook proper meals.

Can you tell us a bit about CSNN? 

As Canada’s largest, leading school of holistic nutrition, being the first to offer classroom format, CSNN is nationally recognized for its standards of excellence in regards to its curriculum, methods, instructors, and student results that raise the bar in the growing holistic nutrition industry. CSNN’s curriculum is regulated by the provincial education ministries that regulate private career colleges.

What programs are offered at CSNN?

We offer a Natural Nutrition Diploma program, both full-time and part-time, to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (R.H.N) as well as a Holistic Culinary Certificate (for our students and graduates).

What makes CSNN such a unique education facility?

Our science-based and people-focused Natural Nutrition Diploma Program  (leading to professional designations and titles) grants CSNN Graduates respect as successful expert practitioners and leaders in the natural nutrition field. Our focus is on job-creation and careers, with support from our CSNN Alumni Association.

Why is nutrition and food education important to you and your community?

I think it’s essential that we teach people the basic skills our ancestors knew as second nature. We’ve become to accustomed to our fast paced lifestyles and eating out of convenience we’ve lost the basic skills of growing and cooking. Most children don’t even realize their food comes from farms and not from the grocery store. Teaching our children these lost traits can transform their lives and their health for the better, along with feeding those who can’t afford to buy convenience food. Growing a garden is personally rewarding and economical. It’s a win-win!

Do you believe nutrition and food education is important to learn from a young age?

Absolutely! For all the reasons stated above – it’s a lost art and education around nutrition importance cannot be overstated.

Is there anything else you’d like to share with the team back at Growing Chefs?

Keep up the great work and we are happy and proud to sponsor your program!
