First Food Security Networking Night – University of Calgary

  • News

Fresh Routes had the opportunity to participate in the first Food Security Networking Night at the University of Calgary, alongside the Alumni Food Security Network, Food Justice Now, and Home Food Community Kitchen.

We were excited to be a part of this event, which provided a space for individuals and organizations to come together and discuss food security and its impact on communities. We shared our mission and the work we do to address food insecurity through our mobile grocery stores, which bring fresh and affordable food to underserved communities.

Alongside us, other organizations also shared their efforts in fighting food insecurity. Home Food Community Kitchen is a community organization that hosts free cook-a-longs on healthy meals from diverse cultures to provide an upstream approach to food insecurity.

Food Justice Now is a student-led organization at the University of Calgary that focuses on food security and food justice issues on campus. They provide support to students by offering free meal events and education about food security to help alleviate this stressor on students.

The event was a great opportunity to learn about different approaches and solutions to food insecurity, as well as to connect with like-minded individuals and organizations. By working together, we can make a significant impact in addressing food insecurity and creating a more equitable food system for all. We look forward to continuing to collaborate with others in this important work.
