ReThink Food was a one-day innovation challenge for high school students across Metro Vancouver. Participants designed a solution to our sustainability challenge question and competed for seed funding to implement their projects. Over 150 students came together on November 5th, 2015 to generate innovative projects that will have real impact in their schools.

Your Challenge

How do we approach food more sustainably in our schools?

Your Solution

Build real-world projects that address one or more of the following three categories:

  • Reconnect us to the source of our food
  • Cultivate healthy eating and healthy school communities
  • Reduce food waste

Your project could address unexplored areas of opportunity or build on existing initiatives at your school. Tackle the challenge through a variety of lenses, including technology, education, communications, community building, infrastructure change, or a combination of the above and more.

Throughout the day, you will have the chance to connect with your peers and mentors and to build your skills through workshops on ideation, project planning, budgeting, and pitching. Snacks and lunch will be provided.

Bring your creativity and passion for local food, zero waste, and healthy schools. The possibilities are endless!
