Food for Health
Presented nationally by the Canada Agriculture Museum, the Food for Health travelling exhibition addresses, from a consumer point of view, concerns and questions that many Canadians have about the safety of their food supply, and the role food plays in ensuring good health.
By combining hands-on interactive components, multimedia technology, historical artifacts and graphics, the exhibition showcases Canadian initiatives designed to ensure that our food is as safe as possible. Food for Health provides Canadians with the knowledge they need to protect themselves against food-borne illnesses through safe food-handling practices. It will also investigate evidence of links between diet, physical activity and obesity, and illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
Bonus: About one month in advance of the full exhibition, borrowing organizations will receive the Food for Health Suitcase Exhibition. This tabletop exhibition will provide an excellent opportunity for your visitors to get a taste of the upcoming exhibition. Once the full exhibition is in place, you are encouraged to share the Suitcase Exhibition with other organizations within your community, at little or no cost to them (at your discretion). Your only obligation is to cover the costs of shipping the Suitcase Exhibition to its next destination — we will look after these logistics. For more information on the Suitcase Exhibition, please visit www.foodforhealth.ca.
