CRFAIR is currently one of the Island Health Food Hubs and as such, we support information sharing and networking, collaboration and policy development around healthy food systems in the region. There are seven hubs on Vancouver Island that are connected to and supported by Island Health. We are working with the Island Food Security Hubs across Vancouver Island to develop an Island Food Charter.
Each year Island Health hosts conferences and networking events related to food security. These events offer representatives working on food security and in various aspects of the food system to network and share their knowledge of and experience. Representatives from the community food security Hubs partner and collaborate on the planning of these events. See the links below for examples from previous conferences.
