Food Secure Canada is pleased to announce the establishment a new national network of organizations working on local and regional sustainable food systems. This network has been made possible through the generous funding of The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation.
Across Canada, community organizations are doing amazing work to rebuild our broken food system: helping new farmers get land, promoting sustainable procurement in public institutions, ensuring low-income or remote community access to healthy and safe food, eroding industrial monopolies and creating alternatives that are more fair, ecological and healthy. Bit by bit, we are having an economic -- and political -- impact! This network seeks to enhance that impact through strategic joint action: better business planning, joint advocacy initiatives, systematic learning from each other. If this is the kind of work you do, this Network is for you: http://foodsecurecanada.org/webform/local-and-sustainable-food-network
