Suzanne Crocker

Drift Productions & First We Eat Project, Dawson City, Yukon

Suzanne Crocker, an award winning filmmaker and retired family doctor,  spent 2017 eating 100% local in her community of Dawson City, Yukon, starting mid summer 2017 – only eating food that can be grown, raised, gathered, hunted, trapped and fished in and around Dawson.   In the process she researched the wealth of local food options available as well as the challenges and the possibilities for increasing local food security across the Canadian North.

Yellowknife Farmers Market and Food Charter Coalition, Yellowknife, NWT

On January 15, 2016, the Yellowknife Farmers Market and a diverse range of partners officially launched the Yellowknife Food Charter with a giant celebration of food and community spirit. Over 125 Yellowknifers from all walks of life attended the celebration to enjoy all kinds of locally-made food, listen to live music, and learn more about the Yellowknife Food Charter. Since then, a Yellowknife Food Charter Coalition has been struck, and will drive actions to improve food security under the Yellowknife Food Charter. YKFM will continue to seek funding to support this work and will also continue to coordinate the actions of the Coalition for 2016-17, until the group decides how best to represent itself.
