How people get their food matters. Food distribution systems that involve communities and help to create neighbourhood leaders have a great potential to enhance individual and community empowerment. Because of its material, cultural and social importance, food is special in its power to mobilize people to action.
There are lots of reasons to get involved in community-based food projects: for example, you can order the Good Food Box to save money, save time, meet your neighbours, support local farmers and encourage yourself to eat more fresh vegetables and fruit. Or you might want to attend one of our upcoming events, visit FoodShare on a tour, volunteer, or participate in a local community garden.
So many of us want to engage with each other as we explore our personal and collective roles in food security, food systems, and food issues. FoodShare Talks is a book club and discussion series that promotes open dialogue to sink our teeth into some of the leading ideas driving our food movement. Meetings are held seasonally following a book club inspired discussion group format to share questions, reflections, and comments.More Details »
