About the event

The pandemic has shed light on the injustices and discrepancies within our Food Systems, igniting a collective awareness of the need to rethink and restructure the way we interact as a food movement. 


On December 3rd and 4th, 2020, ‘Food Future: Rooted in Changechallenged us to question, be accountable and reimagine what a just, equitable and sustainable Food System means. Together we discussed the challenges we’ve faced in crisis and engaged in meaningful dialogue around the injustices that disproportionately impact our communities while making space to celebrate and acknowledge the resilience that we have seen throughout the past year. 


This virtual event had the goal of connecting our communities, our network and initiatives in the Capital Region around access to food, the future of our local food economy, food justice and creating resilient and sustainable food systems. Each session invited participants to rethink and co-create what a more resilient, equitable and just Food Future means for all. 

Co-hosted with Stream of Consciousness & Sunset Labs.

Explore the sessions presented at the summit - Access key points, themes and calls to action as well as resources shared in the session. 

Every year we honour people doing Good Food work. Learn more about the receipts of the 2020 Good Food Champion Awards.
