A collective of local and regional food organizations and businesses are proposing the formation of a roundtable committed to creating a sustainable and accessible local food system.
This roundtable would be open to all community members with a vested interest in the local food system. We intend to engage local government, business community, and non-profits.
The goal is to strengthen the local food system, so that there is a deeper and wider appreciation for local food and increased access to local food.
Strengthening our local food system will improve our local economy, reduce our collective impact on the environment, and improve prevention against chronic disease.
The first roundtable meeting will be March 22 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at the Courtenay Library.
Cynthia, a food activist and board member of LUSH Valley Food Action Society, will speak at Transition Town Comox Valley’s next meeting Feb. 27 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the venue formerly known as Joe’s Garage in downtown Courtenay.
For more information, contact Cynthia at firstname.lastname@example.org or 250-331-0152.
