Organizations and communities across British Columbia are actively engaged in a variety of healthy eating initiatives and programs.   Great ideas and resources come to our attention everyday.  Feel free to check back on this page often as it will be updated as resources come to our attention.

From food security to guidelines on healthy beverages, from childhood to senior we hope to create a space that shares all of the inventive tools available throughout our network. Please email the Food Skills team at foodskillsforfamilies@diabetes.ca if you wish to submit a resource or link that should be posted to this section.
