Pathways to Healthy, Local and Sustainable Food in our Institutions
Growing procurement of fresh, healthy, locally produced, sustainable food in our schools, universities, health care facilities, and day cares in Nova Scotia, builds healthy communities with healthy local economies. How can we support each other in the work we are already doing and plant new seeds for big ideas and further impact?
Mount Saint Vincent University hosted an interactive workshop connecting over 70 participants from various sectors across Nova Scotia, allowing them to share and learn from each others stories about the strategies and challenges they’ve faced in the journey of procuring fresh, healthy, locally produced and sustainable foods within institutions.
