ounded in 1985, FoodShare Toronto is Canada's largest community food security organization. It works to empower individuals, families and communities through food-based initiatives at the neighbourhood level, while advocating for the broader public policies needed to ensure that everyone has adequate access to sustainably produced, good healthy food. Working "from field to table," they focus on the entire system that puts food on our tables: from the growing, processing and distribution of food to its purchasing, cooking and consumption.

Through presentations and small group discussions we will spark our imagination about what could be possible in Edmonton in terms of strengthening the local food system   and people's access to healthy food. We will also learn some of FoodShare’s story in supporting and developing   community based initiatives leading to better access to healthy food and begin to network with others interested in moving forward. We will explore and experience some of the tools and strategies used and lessons learned by FoodShare in their work around community driven and asset based action initiatives.
