Propogating the Food Movement

This report is part of a study that explores the structure and constitution of networks of food initiatives in British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Nova Scotia, working in partnership with four provincial network organizations. The main purpose of this study has been to enhance our understanding of how organizations in Canada are mobilizing around food-related issues. In particular, the research explores the role that food networks, rather than individual initiatives, play in developing resistance to the corporate, industrial food system. This research also seeks to support and strengthen the activities of each provincial network by providing useful information about how they work. The report summarizes the initial findings from a network survey, semi-structured, in-depth interviews, popular education workshops, and highlights from a roundtable discussion with provincial network representatives reflecting on the research findings.
