Program Overview

Start a club at your school and we'll help you get your message out!

Ever notice how the Dairy Farmers of Canada manage to get their posters up all over school, and talk about how cool drinking milk is?  Weird, right?  That's because they are a massive lobbying group and they influence governments.  But you can too!

Whether you're focused on climate issues, equality, animal rights, human food-science and health, or some combination of those, plant-based foods are a way to get people to be interested in your cause, talk about tough issues, and join you in your fight.

We want to help!

You can apply for a sponsorship grant from us to support a specific program or project you have in mind, or to raise awareness of a specific issue. See the form below.

Responsibilities

  • Work collaboratively with your team to create a unique marketing strategy to increase awareness of plant-based foods at your school

  • Engage fellow students, staff advisors and your school administration to keep everything 'following the rules' and get support and tips from them on how best to work within your system.

  • Be an ambassador for plant-based foods and a change in mindset from traditional dairy messaging while following the Canada Food Guide where applicable.  Use science and studies and data to back up your ideas.

  • Educate students and staff in a way that you're comfortable with

  • Find and recruit the people in your school who would benefit from being in your PBFC-  Vegans, people with allergies to dairy or eggs, supporters of the fight for our climate, animal activist-types.  Anyone you think can help share the right messages to the school.
