Revelstoke Grade 5 students are participating in a program that links food choices to climate change. The Farm to Table program teaches students about issues related to food processing, packaging, and distance travelled and the resulting climate change impacts. The North Columbia Environmental Society hosts classes and field trips to educate students.

Pictured above is Daryin Cameron from Mount Begbie Elementary School. Daryin noted that meat that he has hunted has far less of an environmental impact than industrial agriculture. Everyone agreed that game is tastier too!
