We feel it is important to share the reports of academic or community-based research so you can build on that work and we can, together, work for a better food system. Below you will find links to some of the projects our members have been involved with.

This synopsis was written for British Columbians involved in joint food security initiatives with the government. Public Health has re-emerged as a driver of food security in British Columbia. Food security policy, programs and infrastructure have been integrated into the Public Health sector and other areas of government, including the adoption of food security as a Core Public Health program.
