"Future of Food in the Kootenays Conference"
Nelson, B.C.

Conference Goals
The Future of Food Conference is designed both to educate the local populace with regards to reportedly threatened core food security issues and further to create a report outlining barriers and solutions that will guide a 'working group'. Their task will be to steward implementation of the changes necessary for local/regional food reliance in the coming years.

Community Food Matters supported this conference and shared the group's work with delegates through a 20-minute presentation.
