We’re excited  to invite you to the King’s County Food Summit: Local Food for All on June 10th, 2017, 9am- 5pm, to be held at Acadia University, in the Fountain Commons. Here are some of the questions that have inspired us to organize this summit:

  • What does a healthy food system where everyone has dignified access to healthy food look like in Kings County?
  • What can we put in place as a network to ensure that food projects and social enterprises are sustainable?
  • What food security initiatives or ideas (community gardens, income based solutions, food hubs, community kitchens etc.) are people working on and how can we start to collectively support them now?

The day will provide space for pitching your projects and ideas, time to discuss them in small groups and mind-space to depart with clear action plans. We look forward to seeing you. Since it’s FREE to attend and we expect it to fill up long before June 10th, so make sure to register as soon as possible.  

Please note: We have limited financial support available for those who require travel and/or childcare reimbursements to attend or for those who are not directly supported by their organizations to attend. Please contact voices.ra@msvu.ca to express interest in receiving financial support.
