Food at Events

Food Safety

See the Special Events and Farmers’ Market section of our website to help you handle food safely at events. There you will find:

Healthy Eating

For strategies on offering a variety of nutritious food and beverage options from Canada’s food guide at your event, see the “Healthy Eating in the Community” webpage.

Cut down on waste, including food waste and increase composting. Use re-usable dishware, cutlery, and tablecloths. Encourage participants to bring their own re-usable items such as water bottles, mugs, or bags.

Protect participants from their food allergens and make efforts to accommodate dietary restrictions.

Parents have the right to breastfeed anywhere, anytime.

This right is protected by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

An event team member who is breastfeeding and returning to work has a right under the Ontario Human Rights Commission to be accommodated in the workplace so that they can continue to breastfeed their baby. Here you will find more information on policies to support a family-friendly workplace.
