Island Food Network

Community engagement process with Food Policy Working Group of the Island Food Network leads to development of a 'shared food vision' for the Island.

Building a Shared Vision

In 2019, we worked with the Island Food Network to undertake a community engagement process to develop a ‘shared food vision’ for the Island. The process was led by its Food Policy Working Group, made up of individuals involved in local food and food security issues.

The group drafted a vision highlighting key themes to be explored and nearly 300 people from all parts of the Island weighed in through an online survey or at one of eight community food conversations.

After reviewing the findings with participants in a session titled ‘What We Heard’, the shared food vision was finalized (for now) and is available online:
