The North Thompson Food Action Network is a non-profit working group of dedicated North Thompson volunteers whose purpose is to help improve food security in the North Thompson Valley by strengthening our local food system through communication, education, and by championing local food security initiatives.
What is Food Security?
"Community food security exists when all citizens obtain a safe, personally acceptable, nutritious diet through a sustainable food system that maximizes healthy choices, community self reliance and equal access for everyone" - Bellows and Hamm, 2003.
Goals of the North Thompson Food Action Network:
- Increase awareness about local food security
- Educate consumers about the benefits of eating locally produced food
- Connect consumers with local food producers, processors, retailers, and dining establishments
