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.
We're so excited to announce that the second annual Youth Food Gathering will take place on October 20th and 21st at the Quadra Village Community Centre.
The Gathering is a fun and educational weekend event for youth ages 14-24, on unceded Coast Salish Territory.
