The Strathcona Food Security Community Engagement and Research Project is a partnership between North Island College and the Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA). The project has three key aims:
1.) To explore the current assets and gaps in community efforts to improve food security within the Strathcona Region;
2.) To determine the feasibility and relevance of providing support for region-wide networking and capacity building through a Food Security Networking Hub for the region;
3.) To develop a region-wide action plan to build on assets, address gaps and ultimately, improve food security across the region.
Community engagement and participation are integral to the success of the project. A parallel project is happening concurrently in the Mt. Waddington Region.
