REGIONAL FOOD SYSTEMS COVID-19 IMPACTS & RESPONSES BRIEFS
Since the onset of the COVID-19 Pandemic in early March 2020, LUSH Valley has been following the lead of the Capital Regional Food and Agriculture Roundtable to provide a weekly briefing to Comox Valley government representatives at the municipal, regional, provincial and federal level. These briefing reports provide regional highlights of food security needs, programs, services and initiatives that are responding to the crisis. The briefings also supply provincial, federal and global information on food supply and food producer issues and supports.
These (now) bi-weekly briefings are to inform governments, emergency planners and other decision-makers and stakeholders of the importance and relevance of bringing food security and local food systems top of mind and onto their agendas at this unprecedented time.
