Webinar: Building Relationships

The key to influencing local, sustainable procurement at institutions

Hosted by Food Secure Canada

Join us in this webinar to find out more about the CFSP’s lessons learned, approach, and to hear first hand about the experience of students affecting cultural changes in institutional food systems.


Since 2011, the Campus Food Systems Project (CFSP), a joint initiative between Meal Exchange and Sierra Youth Coalition, has been working to empower students with the leadership skills they need to bring healthy, local, and sustainable food to Canadian campuses. An essential component of this project has been the work of our student leaders to cultivate a shared culture of investment and interest in the food system across key players within their institutions. Our student leaders have successfully empowered champions and developed diverse networks within their institutions and communities. These networks and relationships are key ingredients to pushing a good food agenda forward within any institutional food system – be it a post-secondary campus, hospital, or school.
