Are you interested in growing, consuming or recycling food in the West End? If so, this session may be of interest to you. The session will start out by exploring key information about the food system within the West End followed by an asset mapping exercise to collaboratively learn more about what assets exist within our community.

The food system covers all aspects of food, including:

  • Production
  • Processing
  • Distribution
  • Access
  • Consumption
  • Waste management

A healthy food system is one in which food production, distribution, and consumption are integrated to enhance the environmental, economic, social, and nutritional health of a place.
