North Island College and Island Health are asking for your thoughts on food security in the Strathcona Region this fall with a public survey and a series of community conversations! Food security is when everyone has access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their food preferences, and is harvested or produced sustainably. The Quadra Island community conversation will take place Wednesday, Nov. 13 from 7-9pm at the Community Centre, everyone is welcome.
The results of the survey and the conversations will be used to produce an Action Plan to address food security in the Strathcona Region, and will help to determine whether a Food Security Networking Hub (an Island Health initiative) is feasible for our region.
