CFICE Food Security Hub partner, L.I.N.C. (Long-term Inmates Now in the Community), is a non-profit charity that works to develop positive understanding and dialogue between prison institutions, long-term offenders and the community.
L.I.N.C. is the first and only awareness group of its kind run by ex-offenders in Canada. It was founded by Glen Flett, Sherry’s husband. The couple married 30 years ago while Glen was serving a life sentence in prison. Together at L.I.N.C. they hold community events, support groups and run an agricultural social enterprise, called Emma’s Acres, that employs victims, survivors, offenders and ex-offenders.
This month, Emma’s Acres has been featured in an article published by Small Farm Canada Magazine! The article discusses the origins of Emma’s Acres, and the ways in which this social enterprise has helped offenders and ex-offenders become part of their community.
