Building a sustainable food system in Newfoundland and Labrador


In this time of climate crisis and food insecurity, we need to adapt and change our food production and food sharing in this province to restore ecological balance and health in our communities. This online conference organized by Food Producers Forum, with support from the Faculty of Medicine, the Office of Public Engagement, Memorial University and CBC Radio & Television, focused on how we can do this.  

Conference Schedule

We acknowledge the island of Ktaqmkuk as the ancestral homeland and territory of the Beothuk and the Mi’kmaq and
Labrador as the ancestral homeland and territory of the Innu of Nitassinan, Inuit of Nunatsiavut, and Inuit of NunatuKavut.
We hold deep respect for the cultures, traditions and knowledge of all those who call these places home.
We acknowledge the damage of the past and the persistence of racist attitudes and policies.
We will work with indigenous partners to make these territories places of healing and shared knowledge.

Major Funding for Rural Food Security Available from Department of Agriculture

The Federal Department of Agriculture is offering major funding to rural communities, to help rebuild food security at the community level.   They are offering funding to municipalities, Indigenous groups and local non-profits.  Our federal agriculture contact can provide more information: tonya.norman@agr.gc.ca.
