For 40 years, Nutrition Month, during March, has been a campaign to increase awareness of dietitians across Canada as well as promote values of the dietetic profession, such as healthy relationships with food and access to good food for all. The information below highlights ways to get involved in Nutrition Month 2023 throughout the Thunder Bay District and includes information and links for select activities and topics.
Are you in a position of privilege with the capacity to advocate for better access to good food for all?
- Let your Federal MP know about your support for Bill S-233, an act to develop a national framework for a guaranteed livable basic income. In Thunder Bay and District, contact Hon. Patty Hajdu, MP or Marcus Powlowski, MP.
- Support and share the new Emergency Food Plan to be adopted by the City of Thunder Bay. The plan will better prepare Thunder Bay and surrounding municipalities to address food access challenges during emergency events like the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Learn more from this Hungry for Change resource.
March 15, 2023 is Dietitians Day. Celebrate dietitians for the work they do as regulated health professionals, the growing diversity within the field, as well as the communities and individuals they are lucky to support.
If you know or work with a Registered Dietitian, take some extra time this day to show your appreciation through a shared snack, shout out or any other act of care that may be welcomed.
