Step up to the plate!

This slogan came out of the closing strategic session at last week’s Food Secure Canada assembly: Waves of Change, Sustainable Food for All.  This year, the gathering of 450 sustainable food supporters was held in Halifax. Devouring plenty of Off the Hook seafood didn’t stop us from being quite productive. We spent 4 days hearing about best practices, tweeting inspiring quotes (#foodwaves), sharing ideas on the podium and at the table, and building new paths of connection. Topics ranged from urban farming, food programs and policy, sustainable agriculture and fishery, first nations food security, food research, government initiatives and many more…Institutional food procurement was a popular topic, and I’m thrilled to share some highlights with you.
