Food Literacy Workshops

Our train-the trainer style workshops are available for community organizations and/or school staff looking to run their own cooking or food literacy programs.

More information on upcoming workshops will be posted once available.

Food literacy workshops are offered as a two-session series:

Part 1 – This five-hour session includes an overview of food literacy programs, basic requirements for running a program, food safety, and hands-on cooking so that you can experience a class from a client’s perspective. After this session, you will get access to a shared site that contains all our class outlines, recipes, and handouts.

Part 2 – This optional three-hour session is available to anyone who has attended Part 1.  Information covered includes weight bias and stigma, Canada’s Food Guide, label reading, and finding credible nutrition information.

COVID-19 VACCINES IN HPEPH

Appointments for individuals 5+ can be booked through the provincial vaccine booking site, or by calling 1-833-943-3900 from 8 am to 8 pm, 7 days a week.  

Due to limited supply, HPEPH will initially be prioritizing available bivalent vaccine for residents and workers at identified highest-risk facilities.  Some HPEPH vaccination clinics MAY offer the bivalent vaccine, as availability allows. Vaccine clinics in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties will continue to offer monovalent vaccines (the same mRNA vaccines given as the primary series) for all eligible individuals until a steady supply of the bivalent vaccine is available.

Visit the HPEPH vaccine booking web page for details.
