Eating Well in Pictou Landing: Pollution and access are daily challenges
A new research report reveals that pollution and ecological changes around Pictou Landing First Nation (in Nova Scotia) are the most significant community challenge when it comes to eating well. Community members shared photographs and stories to describe their experiences with food and point to their key concerns, which also included physical and economic access to healthy food.
The report’s summary, along with a video presentation and the full report can be found at http://foodarc.ca/project-

Join Food Secure Canada on Thursday May 22, at 1PM Eastern / 10AM Pacific for the story of how the community of Guelph, Ontario is changing the way it thinks about food security.
