Bring Food Home 2019 has begun!

Today is the second Bring Food Home 2019 event, with FoodShare Toronto hosting Food Justice: Dismantling Racism in the Food Movement. Learn more on their event website here, and be sure to follow along with FoodShare on Twitter to see updates throughout the day!

A reminder that if you would like to attend October 29th’s event, Urban Access to Traditional Food: Understanding Wild Game, but can’t make it in person, join us via video conference! Contact us at to receive the link. This event is hosted by the Indigenous Food Circle in collaboration with the Thunder Bay and Area Food Strategy and the Thunder Bay District Health Unit.

Bring Food Home 2019 will then wrap on Saturday, November 23rd, with Ratinenhayén:thos hosting Seed Saving: Sharing the Art at the Kenhtè:ke Seed Sanctuary and Learning Centre. This conference is for youth, farmers, hobby gardeners, foodies, and anyone who wants to learn more about seed saving and feeding ourselves through a modern Indigenous lens. Stay tuned for the full schedule!

The first Bring Food Home regional conference took place on October 10th, with Just Food and the Algoma Rural Agri-Innovation Network exploring Canada’s Food Guide: Reconciling Food Security, Sustainable Diets and Agriculture. If you missed the event, stay tuned as a recording of the live video conference will be going up shortly on our Greenhouse!

Thank you to everyone who is taking part in, attending and supporting these events. It’s been a wonderfully collaborative process! A special shout out to Whole Foods Market, who is sponsoring all four regional Bring Food Home 2019 events.
