    As part of our selection process, Food For All will prioritize applications:

    • where the training is set to take place in a First Nation community or catered to a racialized, immigrant, and/or newcomer group (e.g. organized by a Multicultural Association);
    • where the training is to be held in French or other non-English language;
    • where the training is taking place in North West or South West-Centre NB counties (as this is where the least amount of CFM trainings have taken place so far)
  • What we offer

    • Coordination & facilitation support materials;
    • A detailed and malleable syllabus;
    • Promotional support;
    • 1 on 1 support via video/phone call with Community Food Mentor Program Coordinator; and
