Since 2022 the Every Bite Project, partnering with Nature Regina has announced Every Bite Affects the World Local Action Award recipients. This one-time award recognizes the work these local organizations are doing to increase people's understanding and skills around food sovereignty, helping people discover the connections between the food we eat, our own health, and the health of other living beings and the environment. Eight awards have been given, most recently to two new land-based education programs offered by Regina Public Schools. The award recipients to date are:​

Since April 2022 the following award recipients have been announced: 

  • North Central Community Association -Community Gardens 

  • Heritage Community Association -11th Avenue Art Park 

  • Prairie Sky School -Food Forest and Mural 

  • Buffalo People Arts Institute 

  • City Street Farms

  • miskâsowin askîhk Program (finding oneself on the land) Campus Regina Public 

  • kiskinwahamatowin – Learning Together Thomson Community School 

  • Indigenous Christian Fellowship – Ceremonial Garden 

The award includes a cash donation of $800 to each recipient, and opportunity to share their story as part of a social media video series, to be produced by Nature Regina over the coming months.  The award aims to highlight these great examples of local community actions and inspire others to action.

The Every Bite Project is inspired by the book Every Bite Affects the World: an earth care cookbook for joyful, mindful eating, by Catherine Verrall and friends, Friesen Press, 2014.

The Every Bite Local Action Awards are funded through the proceeds of book sales and legacy donations made to the Every Bite Project in memory of Catherine Verrall. The book can be purchased online from Friesen Press and in Regina at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum Giftshop and the Penny University Book


Catherine Verrall (1929 – 2021) was well known in Regina's environmental activist community. The Local Actions Awards honour her life-long commitment to environmental and social justice and education and continue the journey of growing awareness and action.
