The Food Action Research Centre or FoodARC is a research centre at Mount Saint Vincent University committed to research and action to build food security in Nova Scotia and beyond. FoodARC's projects and activities are grounded in four pillars:
Food security exists when everyone has access to safe, nutritious food of the variety and amount that they need and want, in a way that maintains their dignity. Food security also exists when people are able to earn a living wage by growing, producing, processing, handling, selling, and serving food, as well as when our planet is protected for future generations.
