Along with support from CERIC, FoodShare Toronto received a two-year grant in 2010 from The Counselling Foundation of Canada for its Pathways to Youth Employment program. The learnings gathered in the program were used to develop a program manual to be shared with other organizations across the country looking to create youth employment opportunities based on food services.

This manual provides insight into how this program works and the components of this innovative youth employment program. It includes:

  • A detailed elaboration of why and how the Focus on Food – Pathways to Youth Employment program was designed
  • A breakdown of its policies and procedures
  • The program’s placement model
  • Templates of the various administrative and marketing forms used in this initiative
