Pull up a chair and join Resetting the Table

Our Assembly Organizing Team has been hard at work finalizing our program and the schedule should be up in the next week. In the meantime you can get a taste of the plenary sessions to be held over the four days, starting with a special event curated by Food Secure Canada’s Indigenous Advisory Circle that is open to the public, Decolonizing the Table: An Evening on Indigenous Food Sovereignty (7 pm, October 13, 2016, Ryerson University).

There are also 50+ workshop sessions dealing with different aspects of the food policy agenda, including: 

  • Food justice: how can we create a truly diverse and equitable food system with good food jobs? (with our partners, the United Food and Commercial Workers and the Metcalf Foundation)
  • The next generation of healthy Canadians: getting healthy food in schools and teaching kids to cook, garden and eat good food (with the Coalition for Healthy School Food, the Heart and Stroke Foundation and Sustain Ontario)
  • Combatting food insecurity in Canada (with PROOF and Community Food Centres Canada);
  • Supporting family farms and the next generation of farmers, and the growth of organics (with the Canadian Organic Trade Association, the National Farmers Union and the New Farmers Initiative);
  • Building the links between climate change, sustainable energy and food (with Greenpeace and the Leap Manifesto);
  • Discussions on aid, agroecology, and GMOs (with the Food Security Policy Group and International Development Research Centre);
  • Building momentum with creative and innovative ways to localize our food systems that deliver on the triple bottom line (with InvestEco, CUPE and J.W. McConnell Family Foundation)
  • National food policy, with an interactive panel hosted by Carleton University, bringing together Food Secure Canada, the Conference Board of Canada, the Canadian Federation of Agriculture and the Canadian Agricultural Policy Institute
