from CFICE, Tuesday, February 23, 2016
On February 21st, 2016, our friend and colleague, Cathleen Kneen, passed away. Cathleen has been a huge part of the CFICE community since the beginning. As the former director of Food Secure Canada, she served as community co-lead in the Community Food Security hub. Cathleen strongly believed in CFICE and in the potential power of knowledge co-creation between community researchers and academic researchers to address the many social and environmental challenges facing Canada. Her strength of vision will continue to guide us moving forward.

We are all deeply saddened by the news of Cathleen Kneen’s passing. She was a force to be reckoned with, and her vision will continue to help transform the Canadian food system.
