Are you interested in good food?

Imagine a way to connect youth passionate about food from across the CRD. The Youth Food Network aims to be the platform for individuals between the ages of 14-24 to collaborate on, learn about, and explore good food and their local food systems.

Our Territory Acknowledgment

The Youth Food Network is composed of young individuals that are passionate about good food and want to engage further in their food systems. Every one of us engages with the land and waters in some way; we eat, we grow, we forage, we fish. As we do so, we hold the understanding of where our practices come from, and how they affect our surroundings.  The Youth Food Network works, educates, learns, and grows on unceded, Coast Salish Territory*. 

* The term Coast Salish is used to encompass a number of Indigenous peoples, including Esquimalt, Hul’qumi’num, Klahoose, Lekwungen (Songhees), MALAXEt, Musqueam, OStlq’emeylem, Pentlatch, Scia’new (Beecher Bay), Sliammon, Shishalh, Skxwú7mesh-ulh Úxwumixw, Stó:lo, Straits, Tsleil-Waututh, T’Sou-ke, W_SÁNEC (Pauquachin, Tsartlip, Tsawout, Tseycum), and Xwemalhkwu.
