CFICE’s Community Food Security Hub

A hand holds freshly-picked radishes.The Community Food Security (CFS) hub examines the community-campus partnership models and best practices used to advance the food security and food sovereignty agenda of their lead community partner, Food Secure Canada. Through different demonstration projects, they seek to research and strengthen food security networks in Canada, and advance progress on attaining food security in communities across the country.

The CFS hub works from the position that Community Food Security occurs when all residents within a community obtain safe, culturally appropriate diets, and use environmentally sustainable food systems.

Charles Levkoe, Canada Research Chair in Sustainable Food Systems, Lakehead University, is the co-lead of the CFS hub. Cathleen Kneen, feminist and social activist with Food Secure Canada, was also a co-lead before she passed away in 2016.
