Join us for this annual gathering of food security champions! This year, we are excited to gather with folks from across Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. Our theme is 'Nourishing Island Connections' and our priority areas include cultural safety, Indigenous foods, school food initiatives, youth engagement, rural and remote community perspectives, and collective impact. 

There are opportunities throughout the conference for youth to get together and learn about the Youth Food Network, as well as opportunities to have your voice heard at the table where decisions are made. 

Register by November 9th.  Visit www.crfair.ca/goodfoodsummit for more info.
