How Wholesome Wave is shaking up preventative health

September 29, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

On Thursday, September 29 from 12:00 – 1:00 Eastern, join Community Food Centres Canada for a free webinar. What would happen if lack of funds wasnâ??t a barrier to accessing fresh fruit and vegetables? Access to healthy food directly correlates to health – and a lack of it prevents low-income communities from managing diet-related illnesses such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Where can we focus our interventions to have the most impact? In this one-hour webinar, we’ll look at how Wholesome Wave is getting good food into the hands of vulnerable communities – from prescriptions for fruit and vegetables and matching incentives at farmers markets to a national network that offers grants and training for programs offering subsidized healthy food access. Michel Nischan, award-winning chef and CEO of Wholesome Wave joins us to share his recipe for addressing diet-related chronic disease at the root, with measurable benefits to people’s health.
