Thank you for joining us at #CultivatingChange2020! We received approximately 1200 registrations and, over the past few days, we came together for the first online Food Secure Canada gathering.

We spoke virtually with Wade Thorhaug, Executive Director of the Qajuqturvik Community Food Centre in Iqaluit about the biggest challenges to food security and food sovereignty in the community.

On September 24, we met for a virtual visit with Rébeka Frazer-Chiasson of the Cooperative Ferme Terre Partagée in Rogersville, New Brunswick, an organic farm based on the values of agroecology and food sovereignty.

We spoke to Anan Lololi, an urban sustainable food systems consultant and veteran food justice activist based out of Toronto, Ontario.

We spoke with Sarah Kim, coordinator of the Vancouver Neighbourhood Food Networks about how the food movement in Vancouver is reacting to the challenges of Covid-19, the potential for convening and her vision for policy change.

We are living in unprecedented times which means change is possible, including migrant justice. Join the migrant justice movement and advocate for the individuals who sustain our food supply chain and food security.

We’ve compared what the throne speech says about food with the policy recommendations we outlined in Growing Resilience & Equity.

https://foodsecurecanada.org/resources-news/news-media/dispatch-food-movement-rebeka-frazer-chiasson-ferme-terre-partagee-nbCanada is among the countries that has committed to this ambitious agenda which includes goals to improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.

FSC’s “Growing Resilience And Equity” outlines a policy action plan for food system renewal, post-Covid and beyond.

In 2020-2021, we are looking for 2 - 4 new Board members who share this commitment to collaborative food systems transformation at multiple levels, from the grassroots to federal policy.
