Durham Region Community Food Advisors (CFA)

Who Are Community Food Advisors?

Community Food Advisors are volunteers who have received approximately 70 hours of training on healthy eating and the safe handling, selection, preparation and storage of food along with communication skills.

The Community Food Advisors complement the work of public health professionals as well as dietitians and teachers in the community.

What do Community Food Advisors Offer?

Using Eating Well with Canada's Food Guide, Community Food Advisors may provide demonstrations, presentations, displays and other services about safe and healthy food ideas to the Durham Region community.

Sample topics include:

  • Tasty, low fat cooking
  • Healthy eating on a budget
  • Quick, healthy lunch and snack ideas
  • Proper hand washing procedures (great for children)
  • How to read food labels

And much more!

Some of the groups who use the services of Community Food Advisors include recreation centres, seniors’ centres, libraries, prenatal programs, food banks, places of worship, children's groups, community kitchens and community gardens.
