The Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) created a website called “Six by Sixteen” that aims to ensure the next generation knows how to make healthy, nutritious food choices. Six by Sixteen hopes to ensure food literacy in young people as they learn to plan and prepare six nutritious, locally sourced meals by the time they reach sixteen years of age. Their website features cooking lessons, resources to find local food sources, and education on how to make healthy food choices.
The OFA wants to see how the youth in your life utilize their cooking skills. Please like and share the website, and encourage youth to share their pictures of cooking with the OFA by emailing email@example.com
