Join Crystal Mackay for a look into the new Canadian Centre for Food Integrity public trust in food research with insights from moms, millennials and foodies. To earn public trust in food, these research insights need to be actionable. What can you do to improve your report card on public trust? Is social license the right benchmark to be chasing?
Learn more about Farm & Food Care and their efforts as they build for this challenge of earning public trust in Canadian food and farming for the future, and what you can do to help make that happen.
The Centre for Sustainable Food Systems at Wilfrid Laurier University and researchers at the University of Guelph need your help to capture an accurate picture of food flowing through local food hubs in Ontario. This research is part of a suite of work being done by FLEdGE (Food: Locally Embedded, Globally Engaged) in partnership with universities and organizations across Ontario to support regional local food systems.
Building on last year’s inaugural research into regional food systems in Ontario, this survey aims to gather information about food sales through hubs of all kinds over the last year.
