Why Food? Why Now?

Download: 

In the last 50 years Canada's food system has come to be all about efficiency, quantity, and economy - not health, employment, environment, and self-reliance. The response of our communities to this threat, while admirable, is wholly unequal to its magnitude. This edition of Making Waves invites you to identify the real issues, the real opportunities, the real difficulties - and to start building a real food system.

"Our passion is to build a food system that is sustainable ecologically as well as economically, secure for farmers and processors as well as for consumers of every income bracket, good tasting as well as good for us personally, for the places where we live, for our neighbours, and for the generations to follow. We are hungry for good food and we are hungry for action! What about you?"
