Volunteer and help create the People's Food Policy!

Do you have a 5 - 10 hours per week to contribute to an exciting national project - The People's Food Policy Project? 
Over 100 volunteers across the country are creating a food sovereignty policy for Canada. This fall the Cross-country Kitchen Table Talks will be reaching out to Canadians from coast to coast to coast, asking them to speak up for the food system they want. We need your help to make the Cross-country Kitchen Table Talks a success!
