Wildsight Elk Valley Branch proudly presents FOOD for THOUGHT: Food Security For Our Communities – an online event designed to educate, connect & inspire anyone interested in food security. We’re bringing together thought leaders, community organizers, politicians, educators and growers to hear their thoughts about what you can do to raise awareness about food security at a local level, how you can take action to encourage a food system redesign, and what’s happening in their communities to inspire you to keep up the work you’re already doing.
