The pandemic has brought food systems into sharp focus, in particular that it’s vital for people – producers, sellers, consumers – to have agency to shape food systems to meet personal and community needs. And, for policy to support this community-based leadership. How can we ensure people and communities are central to food systems? What impact will this have on building more resilient cities? Join a conversation with experts Melana Roberts, Arzeena Hamir, Leslie Campbell, and moderator Jane Rabinowicz as we explore prioritizing community agency to build sustainable and equitable food systems in Canada.
