We are strong believers, at the Food Policy Council, that great things can happen when we work together – or at the very least we can lighten the load when we work together. Emergency food services in many of the rural areas and small communities of our region rarely have the luxury of continuity – where the same individual is able to build relationships with both the sources of food and with those who will benefit from access to it. This points to a strong need to provide support that can bridge gaps between funding, staffing and service offerings.
The Central Kootenay Food Policy Council will be hosting a virtual meeting for all those in our region who are involved in emergency food services. Our intention for the meeting is simple: to enable people to connect with each other, to learn what is working and what the challenges are, and to brainstorm options for making it easier to ensure that our communities are well fed. The meeting will be Monday, June 20th, at 2PM by Zoom. Please mark your calendars and RSVP to email@example.com to receive the Zoom invitation.
Please share this information with anyone you know who provides emergency food services in the Central Kootenay.
