Growing Resilience and Equity

In collaboration with Food Secure Canada and The J.W McConnell Family Foundation.

To encourage a transformative approach to Canada’s pandemic response and recovery plans, this project supported a number of activities including: monitoring food systems policy and program developments by the federal government; identifying emerging proposals and innovation from food movement leaders in the context of COVID-19; responding to government requests for discussions, analysis and participation regarding food system issues and COVID-19; and convene roundtable and meetings with civil society and the federal government.

In addition, the project prioritizes inclusive food policy governance by including and learning from multiple civil society initiatives, conducting primary research on existing food policy influences, and amplifying the voices of individuals that are Indigenous, Black and/or People of Colour.
