Through interactive workshops, the Food and Nutrition portfolio provides students with the knowledge and skills to prepare quick and healthy meals. It aims to educate students on proper cooking techniques and meal preparation as well as present nutritional information in an exciting manner. Food and Nutrition accommodates the diverse dietary needs in order to include all Innis students. Through a Tumblr blog, the portfolio attempts to consistently reach students with recipes, facts, and entertainment in between workshops.
Every year UeaT faces a barrage of students trying to figure out which meal plan is best for them.
So UeaT repurposed the classic ‘cootie catcher’ into a Meal Plan Picker:
Starting from two scenarios at the top level (‘I live in Residence’ and ‘I don’t live in Residence’), students follow the colour coded options that best describe their situation. The final level presents the relevant meal plans with more information on how to learn more or purchase a plan.
Join us for a mindful exploration of healthy eating and how our relationship with food can affect our mood. This is an interactive program that combines relaxation and mindfulness meditation exercises with practical nutrition knowledge. With the help of a Registered Dietitian we will learn how to translate Canada’s Food Guide into a useful nutrition tool, learning ways to pace and plan meals and integrate healthy snacks, and about the importance of regular exercise for optimal health and academic performance.
Individual, stand-alone sessions: Dec 6, Feb 7, Mar 7. 5:10-7:30 pm in the Koffler Student Centre (Group Room B) 214 College St

Winterlicious is a food festival held each year in Toronto where restaurants across the city offer prix fixe menus for lunch and dinner. This year it runs from January 27th to February 9th, 2017. The Innis College Student Society (ICSS) grad reps would like to give you a chance to experience Winterlicious with a friend from Innis. This event is for graduating students in fourth year or above (there will be a waitlist for third year students who would like to come if there are spots left) and it is intended to connect students from Innis for a fun lunch before graduation.
We will cover the price of a Winterlicious lunch for you and your partner. Each student will be reimbursed a maximum of $15. Some of the Winterlicious restaurants offer a prix fixe lunch for 18$, and you will be responsible for the rest ($3, tax and tip on your meal).

This weekend is Thanksgiving, a North American holiday where people gather together, eat great food, and reflect on what they are thankful for. The Innis Office of Student Life is having our own Thanksgiving Potluck together!
A big part of Thanksgiving (and an essential part of potluck) is sharing food, so bring something to share with the rest of the building–mashed potatoes (lots!), salad, a vegetable dish, any kind of dessert. It’s great to bring something that you have fond memories of eating at home. There is a sign-up sheet taped to the front desk to write down what you plan to bring for our Thanksgiving celebration! Turkey is provided.
Commuters are also welcome!
