Assessing your food environment: An intro to using a new user-friendly manual for food environment assessment (Leia Minaker, Propel Centre for Population Health Impact)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will present a new user-friendly manual for assessing local food environments developed by Health Canada, in collaboration with the Federal, Provincial and Territorial Group on Nutrition. The manual is intended to be a comprehensive and consistent tool that can be used and adapted in any community across Canada to assess the quality of the community food environment with respect to enabling healthy choices. The manual is currently being tested in four Canadian communities and the findings will inform refinement of the tool. The session will provide a practical overview of the manual and how it can be used.
