It's 2015. Wow. Remember how Back to the Future Part 2 took place in 2015 and how far away that seemed when that movie came out (we're dating ourselves, right?).
This is our first "weekly" news for the year and we're using quotation marks for a reason. The Weekly News will now be published every other week or as needed. Don't worry - there will still be lots of places to get updates as they happen, including our newsletters, our Facebook page, twitter, G+ and even Instagram! And if you're a blogger member, you can get the most up to date membership news in our two private FBC Facebook Forums: FBC Main Forum and the FBC Social/Giveaways/Linkup Forum.
So here's what's happening this week!
Half Your Plate Twitter Party
Join us this Thursday for the Half Your Plate Twitter Party. This is such a great national initiative to get more Canadians filling half their plates with fruits and vegetables at every meal and we're very excited to be taking part. Join us, Half Your Plate and one of our favourite FBC Dieticians, Zannat Reza (@Food4Happiness) as we talk about easy, practical ways to get more fruit and veggies on your plate - lots of great chat and, of course, prizes! Be sure to RSVP to be eligible for prizing!
