Not at the Kiddie Table Any More, project led by Fireweed Collective Society in Fort St. James

The Not at the Kiddie Table Any More project, led by Fireweed Collective Society, included a food-based harm reduction strategy, through nutrition-based programming, to help vulnerable youth ages 16-25 develop lifelong skills that support healthy transitions. The program also focused on youth leadership and empowerment, to engage and facilitate youth involvement in policy development and community visioning of Fort St. James.

Impacting 80 youth, this project improved school attendance and performance and reduced drug and alcohol use. This project further improved health, education and social service access for all youth by reducing service gaps in the community.
