Partnerships have been formed with recreation committees, town councils, arena/facility managers, community groups, parents, volunteers, youth, schools, and sport teams from across the province to explore new and creative ways to promote healthy eating.
Eat Great and Participate is pleased to launch our Great Things campaign! This campaign highlights the great work communities across the province are doing to promote and support healthy eating.
