Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities Indigenous Food Network

The Vancouver Island & Coastal Communities Indigenous Food Network (VICCFN) is a collective of passionate and dedicated members with a shared vision of a healthy future based upon reconnecting with First Nations cultural teachings and practices. The membership is made up of culturally knowledgeable food harvesters and gatherers, health professionals, community development workers and members of the scientific community. VICCFN aims to build collaborative approaches in addressing issues of traditional food access and security. In addition, the connected Vancouver Island Traditional Food Network intends to research, document and share the ancestral strengths that are deeply rooted throughout Vancouver Island for the preservation for future generations.
