“When you think about the level of change in society that is required, it requires change within ourselves regarding the way we work, thinking of ourselves as learners.” Dr. Patty Williams Director of FoodARC
FoodARC is a research centre at Mount Saint Vincent University committed to research and action to build food security in Nova Scotia and beyond. FoodARC is a working successfully at the heart of the food movement. This context is increasingly complex with multiple initiatives operating in direct relationship to the centre. In this climate of increased activity FoodARC needed to be clear on it’s unique role and contribution to each initiative and the movement as a whole.
Tim supported them reach this clarity through engaging various levels of stakeholder. This included engagement sessions, visual identity development and writing a constitution document.
Previously Tim has worked with FoodARC to launch Activating Change Together (ACT) for Community Food Security. This is a participatory research project that enhances Community Food Security for all Nova Scotians'.
The Nova Scotia Food Security Network, researchers from Mount Saint Vincent and Saint Francis Xavier Universities, the Nova Scotia Nutrition Council and the Nova Scotia Department of Health Promotion and Protection, along with 50 key community, university, and government partners from across Nova Scotia and Canada have come together to work in collaboration to enhance understandings of Community Food Security (CFS) while strengthening capacity for policy change.
