How We Work

We believe food is fundamental to human health, dignity, and social and economic potential. It feeds opportunity.

We believe everyone should have equitable access to good food and we strive to advance inclusivity and equity through our work.

We seek to advance cross-sector collaboration and learning that we share with others.

We engage in advocacy, using our voice and amplifying the voices of partners to build awareness and shift systems to address barriers to food security.

We build partnerships with organizations that foster dignity, social inclusion and increase sustainable food security.

We value experimentation to learn what works and what doesn’t and strive to increase impact at scale. 

We embrace clear and ambitious goals to drive us forward and apply evidence-based approaches to measure progress.

How we aim to create impact:

By building the capacity of the food security sector by advancing collective knowledge and collaboration, we expect that there will be increased effectiveness and efficiency of programs which advance food security;

By scaling our impact through partnerships that advance sustainable and effective strategies, we expect to be able to reach more food insecure people; and

By raising awareness and will of the Canadian public and advocating for policy change, we expect to reduce the barriers to food security and shift the systems that entrench food insecurity for millions of people in Canada.
