The Calgary EATS! Stewardship Group invites you to:
Calgary EATS! A Taste of Our Local Food System
Take a Tour. Take Action.
Keynote address: Rolling Stanley, General Manager Planning, City of Calgary
Tour the Calgary regional food system. See what's going on in different food sectors around the city and how you can take action to work towards building a sustainable, accessible and resilient food system!
- Processing and Distribution
- Waste Recovery
- Community and Education
This unique event aims to engage Calgarians interested in building a sustainable local food system. A sustainable and resilient food system means that we recognize the connections between economic vibrancy, environmental sustainability and community health from the production of food through to waste recovery. Event participants will first be addressed by keynote speaker, Rollin Stanley (City of Calgary, General Manager of Planning) and then guided through a facilitated tour of the food system: production, processing, distribution, access, consumption, waste recovery, environmental sustainability, health, community and education. At each station, ambassadors from that sector will introduce their work and discuss how it relates to building a sustainable and resilient food system in Calgary (plus you'll get some tasty snacks to try from Devour Catering)!
The evening will close with a discussion on how to take action towards food system change. This will encourage a systems approach to food sustainability for the Calgary region, identifying the various entry points to get involved and take action, and how we can work collaboratively to achieve a common goal: A sustainable and resilient food system for the Calgary region so that every Calgarian has access to local, healthy and environmentally friendly food.
*CASH BAR! Bring some money and enjoy some beer from Village Brewery!
