Description

The 2018 Good Food Summit: Sharing Good Food Stories

NOVEMBER 22 - 23

Each year our Good Food Network gathers to celebrate and strengthen our efforts towards creating sustainable, healthy, just food systems in the Capital Region.

The Good Food Summit emphasizes cross sector collaboration, networking, skill building, and highlights the Good Food work happening in the Capital Region. This event draws educators, farmers, students, health care professionals, politicians, funders, and more.

Good Food is: good for the planet, good for the provider, good for the health and well-being of all

The Good Food Network launched in 2015 as a way of connecting across sectors and silos to engage the whole food system. Strengthening diversity and collaboration are critical to achieving system change.


This years summit has three components:

1) SAVOURY STORIES - NOVEMBER 22

CRFAIR promotes healthy and sustainable food systems. This considers our relationships with each other, and the land and waters of this region. We endeavour to honour the land and its treaties by strengthening our relationship and responsibilities to them. We live and work on unceded Coast Salish Territories*, specifically of the Lekwungen (Songhees and Esquimalt Nations) and W̱SÁNEĆ (Tsartlip/W̱JOȽEȽP, Tseycum/WSIḴEM, Tsawout/SȾÁUTW, and Pauquachin/BOḰEĆEN Nations).

The presence of settlers (non-Indigenous peoples who live on these lands) is not neutral; it has had and continues to have devastating impacts on many aspects of life for Indigenous peoples. Many of our practices, including the seeds we plant, the ways we educate, and our methods of growing food came to these lands through the ongoing process of colonialism. Settler colonialism has suppressed local well-being by harming Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ food systems, whether they be land-based or of the sky and sea. We hold this understanding in our interactions and engagements with this land and its people.

There is important work being done by many nations and allies to ensure the continued thriving of these food systems, communities, and knowledge systems. Those of us who are settlers need to recognize that our knowledge and way of doing things may not be the priority as we work towards food security for everyone in this region.

* The term Coast Salish is used to encompass a number of Indigenous peoples, including Esquimalt, Hul’qumi’num, Klahoose, Lekwungen, MALAXEt, Musqueam, OStlq’emeylem, Pentlatch, Scia’new (Beecher Bay), Sliammon, Shishalh, Skxwú7mesh-ulh Úxwumixw, Stó:lo, Straits, Tsleil-Waututh, T’Sou-ke, W̱SÁNEĆ, and Xwemalhkwu.
