The National Canada’s Food Guide Committee (NCFGC) is made of people between the ages of 12-25 from every province and territory in Canada. The NCFGC is brought together to learn about and provide input on healthy eating promotion, and to ensure our efforts targeting youth are relevant. The group represents not only geographic diversity but is also inclusive of a variety of diverse lived experiences and identities. We strive to encourage and support recruitment from a variety of diverse backgrounds including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, family status, and/or diverse abilities.
