vision, mission, & lens
The Comox Valley has a thriving local food system where food is celebrated and farmers, food growers and harvesters are supported. Through local food systems the region strives towards reconciliation, ecological sustainability and climate change mitigation. Community food security ensures access to healthy and culturally appropriate food for all, and food systems education is a priority.
We support and work with decision makers and others in our community to implement policy and practices aligned with our vision.
The values that we consider when moving our work forward and the question(s) we ask are “will the proposed policy/action contribute to:”
– Food equity/access
– Climate change mitigation/adaptation
– Systems change
