Thursday Sept 28 from 6:30-8:30 pm: What’s Your Recipe for a Better Food System?

What's Your Recipe For A Better Food System- (5)

What food issues matter to you? What are the biggest challenges and barriers our communities are facing with food? What food stories do you want heard? We want to hear from you!

The Toronto Youth Food Policy Council in partnership with FoodShare Toronto, Toronto Food Policy Council and New College, University of Toronto will be hosting a community engagement session to hear about YOUR interests, opinions and ideas about what should go into Canada’s first ever National Food Policy!

To help highlight the diverse food issues in our communities, the engagement session will feature 5 roundtables throughout the evening with designated facilitators who will bring their own stories and experience to the table. The roundtables will focus on: community food work, indigenous food sovereignty, food policy, youth voices and farmer experiences.

Each table will have a recorder, who will be taking note of major ideas and direct quotes from participants at each table. These notes will then be compiled into a summary which will be submitted to Food Secure Canada to be a part of a report that will be shared publically to contribute directly to a Food Policy for Canada.
