Nutrition Month 2020 Contest

During Nutrition Month throughout March, we want to see how food brings joy to you! This may be finding comfort in a traditional family recipe or tantalizing your taste buds with a new food or cuisine. Maybe it’s sharing a meal with others, or the experiences related to growing, harvesting, or cooking your favourite foods. Whatever it may be, we recognize food is one of life’s greatest pleasures and eating can be deeply personal.
