Volunteer to Become a Community Food Advisor with Public Health

Community Food Advisors promote safe and nutritious food selection, preparation, and storage practices as well as increase access to reliable nutrition information.

Examples of the activities that Community Food Advisors do throughout Niagara include:

  • Information booths or displays at workplace health fairs, farmers' markets, or shopping centres
  • Facilitating workshops on Eating Well with Canada's Food Guide
  • Provide presentations on a wide range of topics such as menu planning, safe food handling, or low fat cooking
  • Conduct a cooking class or food demonstration

The services of Community Food Advisors are free and available to all ages. However, requesting agencies may be asked to pay for any food or supplies purchased for the placement.

Community Food Advisors complement the work of existing nutrition and food safety professionals such as Registered Dietitians and Public Health Inspectors in the community.
