Building Relationships: The key to influencing local, sustainable procurement at institutions
April 10, 2014
1:00 p.m. EST
Join us in this webinar to find out more about the Campus Food Systems Project's (CFSP) lessons learned, approach, and to hear first hand about the experience of students affecting cultural changes in institutional food systems.
Since 2011, the CFSP, a joint initiative between Meal Exchange and Sierra Youth Coalition, has been working to empower students with the leadership skills they need to bring healthy, local, and sustainable food to Canadian campuses. An essential component of this project has been the work of our student leaders to cultivate a shared culture of investment and interest in the food system across key players within their institutions. Our student leaders have successfully empowered champions and developed diverse networks within their institutions and communities. These networks and relationships are key ingredients to pushing a good food agenda forward within any institutional food system - be it a post-secondary campus, hospital, or school.

What’s Race Got to Do With It: Food, Diversity and Inclusion
April 29, 2014
2:30 p.m. EST
As part of FSC’s emerging Food Justice Network, come hear two food justice thinkers and activists discussing food, diversity, and inclusion and how it relates to their work.
“Food justice seeks to ensure that the benefits and risks of where, what and how food is grown, produced, transported, distributed, accessed and eaten are shared fairly. Food justice represents a transformation of the current food system, including but not limited to eliminating disparities and inequities.” (Robert Gottlieb & Joshi Anupama, Food Justice)
