Growing Chefs! Ontario: Thoughts on Food and Food Security

London’s Vital Signs

For the past 13+ years Growing Chefs! has worked directly with over 40,000 children, youth and families, in over one hundred schools and dozens of local organizations, to help educate Londoners about food, food systems and how to develop the tools, strategies, skills and drive to make healthy change in their lives.
