The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation has established a fund to support business coaching for local and sustainable food systems businesses. The coaching is intended to build on the information available through the Business Bootcamp series, a partnership between Food Secure Canada and The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation. More information on fund eligibility and criteria can be found here.
We’re so excited to present you, our community, with this new tool. It’s a sharing platform that we’ve been talking about with you for years.
It will allow us all to better organize, think and act together for the food systems we want across Canada. I hope that you will take some time to get to know this new space and learn to use it as a tool for your work locally, nationally, even internationally.
FoodShare Executive Director Debbie Field and Anthony Winson, Professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Univesity of Guelph, discuss why Canada needs to join the majority of countries in the world in implementing a children's food policy and what is needed to make this successful.
