Canada’s food movement will gather in Halifax this year for its biennial feast of food and ideas – the first in Atlantic Canada! For three action-packed days, people from many different walks of life who are passionate about building healthy, sustainable food systems where no-one is hungry will gather to share, strategize and build a better future for food in Canada.
The theme – Waves of Change: Sustainable Food for All – reflects the need to place questions of long-term sustainability at the centre of how we think about, produce, and eat our food. It also reflects the growing strength and complexity of the food movement and its commitment to creative and lasting solutions to the problems of hunger, sustainable livelihoods in the food business, and the protection of our health and the environment. Waves symbolize the momentum generated when many drops of water come together as a collective power, as well as highlighting the critical role of water and water-based food. Each of us has an important role to play in making waves to build the kind of food system we would like to see.
