Making Food Matter:

Moving Our Research to Action

Make Food Matter is a strategy to support FoodARC partners in building community food security across Nova Scotia. The online toolkit for the strategy is comprised of five main streams of action – community dialogues, policy, advocacy, social innovation and effective communication. Each stream offers an array of resources that form an online toolkit intended to mobilize over 10 years of research and our collective experiences. The toolkit is designed to be easy to use and to meet partners wherever they are in their activism endeavors.

We encourage you to explore the website. Review the evidence and join the voices from across Nova Scotia on food security. Help us Make Food Matter for all! Use Hashtag #MakeFoodMatter

With community, university and government partners, we are embarking on research and action that helps create the conditions for healthy, vibrant communities in Nova Scotia and beyond that are self-reliant and socially just.

We are working toward a future where everyone has access to enough affordable, healthy, safe and culturally appropriate food, that is produced, processed and distributed in socially, economically, and ecologically sustainable ways.

We are “research inspiring change.”
