Food Connections is an annual conference intended to support food security efforts on Vancouver Island.
This year’s theme is Food Security in Rural and Remote Communities and it is going online to support participation from those living in remote communities on the Island and across the province. Co-ordinated in partnership with PlanH, and the Island Health Food Security Hub Network, several host sites will be located in communities across Vancouver Island, including the Comox Valley.
Taking place on Wednesday, Nov. 19, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Comox Valley screening will be hosted by LUSH Valley Food Action Society. LUSH is a charitable, non-profit grassroots organization focusing on food security. To be hosted at LUSH’s office (1126 Piercy Ave), this event will feature three webinar sessions; each session will be followed by offline group discussions at the host site.
“We are excited to host an opportunity to build bridges with community members and share our experiences from the annual Food Connection Conference taking place in early November. Supporting rural communities is so important; we wish to hear your stories and ideas of how to strengthen food security in all the nooks and crannies of our Islands,” says Chantal Solomon Project Co-ordinator at LUSH Valley Food Action Society.
