What we do

As a charitable organization, we operate from coast to coast with our nine provincial AITC members to deliver accurate, balanced, and current curriculum-linked agri-food resources, programs, and initiatives that are based on science. Through inquiry-based learning, we encourage students and educators to be curious, critical thinkers. By offering dynamic and unique outreach opportunities to connect with Canadians who make their living in agri-food, we bring students up close and personal with Canada's agriculture and food story.

What’s in Your Lunchbox Kits

May 23, 2018

What happens to food between growing on the farm and selling at the grocery store?  We’ve developed some resources that explore our food system for young learners.  We utilize the book “How did that get in my Lunchbox” by Chris Butterworth.  Making the connection between food and where it comes from can lead to healthier eating choices, a better appreciation for agriculture and an understanding of a student’s own connection to the larger food system.
