Pacific Palate – Bridging Borders Toward Food Security

Food_security This week on Pacific Palate you get a taste of Bridging Borders Toward Food Security, a conference held in Vancouver by the Community Food Security Coalition and Food Secure Canada.

What is food security?  It may not be what you think.  One definition which captures the spirit of the concept would read:  Food security is a strong, sustainable, local or regional food system that ensures access to affordable, nutritious and culturally appropriate food to all people at all times.

It’s a mouthful, but visiting the websites posted here will lead you to an intriguing world of agencies, governments and communities all trying to reach a similar goal.

I was only able to touch on the basics on my program this week, but listen to my Food For Thought shows and my podcast in the near future to hear more.
