Environmental Health Officers

7. Environmental Health Officers (EHO) are valuable points of contact for assisting schools in ensuring that their plans meet regulation standards if they involve using food. They may also be able to assess some of the food safety practices of the farms or market gardens supplying your food as well. Although some school proposals do not require EHO approval, we strongly recommend that you involve them in your program.

Although some school proposals do not require EHO approval, we strongly recommend that you involve them in your program.

Evaluation of F2SBC

Farm to School BC is planning to evaluate the impact of the program on students and the school community. If you are a successful recipient of a F2SBC grant, we would like to invite your school to participate in our evaluation. We plan to use a mix of qualitative and quantitative methods (online surveys, key informant interviews with students, parents, teachers and school administrators, focus groups). Your participation is voluntary and you can opt out at any time. More information will be provided at a later date.

Would you be interested in participating in the evaluation process of our program?

(Note: your decision to not participate will not affect your application result)

For more information, please contact Richard Han, Provincial Manager of F2SBC at prov.manager@nullfarmtoschoolbc.ca.
