Close to 100 project partners & community members joined us November 6th for the release of the most comprehensive report on community food security in Nova Scotia ever produced. The participatory research report emphasizes the complexity of community food security in Nova Scotia, notes its many influences, and provides a platform for action. And while the challenges are complex, the strategies to address problems of food security at the community-level are emerging.
