Peace River School Division board of trustees is writing a letter of support for the Alberta Food Matters [AFM] Pilot Project grant application.

PRSD’s letter will outline the board’s support of AFM’s application to the Government of Alberta Community Initiatives Program for grant funding to support a Community School Food Animator position, whose role would be to support teachers in providing food literacy to students.

The program is based on an already vibrant program in British Columbia where there are currently seven animators throughout the province. The position would engage with several school divisions and local food producers and schools to bring a locally supported school literacy program to life based on the Farm to School model.
