Innovative social finance models are poised to address some of our most pressing societal challenges. How can the sustainable and healthy food sector seize these social finance opportunities? Joanna Reynolds, Associate Director at the MaRS Centre for Impact Investing will join the TFPC for a presentation about social finance and food. Joanna will present her research for Toronto Public Health’s Food Strategy on how social finance can be mobilized to make healthy, affordable, and diverse food available more widely across urban neighbourhoods. You are invited to join the discussion and hear about the TFPC’s work on food waste reduction, street food, and pathways to employment through food research.
