Food Connections Workshop
Food Connections is an annual conference intended to support food security efforts on Vancouver Island. This year’s theme is “Food Security in Rural and Remote Communities” and is going online to support participation from those living in remote communities on the island and across the province. Coordinated in partnership with PlanH and the Island Health Food Security Hub Network, several host sites will be located in communities across Vancouver Island and BC, including Sooke.
“How would you feel if there was no local food for your family?” asks Anita Wasiuta, president of Sooke Food CHI. “At this event we are inviting residents to join the discussions and help develop actions for our community to ensure food security.”
