Eat Think Vote 2019 All Candidates Forum
Core Ritchie Neighbourhood Centre
445 14th Avenue
6:00 – 8:00 PM
Canadians make choices everyday about food that directly impacts their health, environment and communities. As we look ahead to the federal election, Food Regina would like to invite you to a discussion with our federal candidates about their party’s plans to improve our food system.
At the event, 1 candidate from each political party wto present for 5 minutes on how their party would implement the new Food Policy for Canada and the food issues facing their constituencies. After each political party has presented, the formal aspect of the event will be concluded.
Following the formal presentations, all candidates will be asked to join their constituency table. At this time, there will be an opportunity to enjoy some food and engage in 1-1 dialogue with members of the community.
As a network collaborating on food issues in Regina and area we join many Regina community members in the feeling that food should be at the forefront of election discussions.
This event is part of Eat Think Vote, a non-partisan campaign coordinated by Food Secure Canada with events from coast to coast to coast, encouraging communities to hear from their federal candidates about their party’s plans to improve our food system.
Around the Kitchen Table: Regina’s local food system
The Regina Community Food Assessment held two public discussions on Tuesday November 26th at the Artesian and invited the community to share their thoughts and opinions.
We had a great turnout and fostered interesting ideas and discussions about our food system, pondering such questions as: What works well? What needs improvement? and What should we do about it? Thank you to all who participated.
Eat Healthy Foods catered fresh, local, and organic food for both events.
