Agents of Change Summit, February 8

January 29 2016


The Agents of Change Summit is the first of its kind event! It will be held in Toronto on February 8th over breakfast starting at 7:30am. The Summit will help us engage students and lend their voice to efforts to promote awareness and engagement in efforts supported by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services, and supported by its partners, including The Grocery Foundation.

Each of the 11 youth Ambassadors who will be speaking at the Summit have been identified by the Ontario Student Nutrition Program Network (OSNPN), which is comprised of lead agencies in 14 regions of the province. Together with OSNPN, The Grocery Foundation is able to channel funds and programs that support the success of student nutrition programs that benefit more than 800,000 children each day.
