A Universal School Food Strategy for Alberta

AFM/GFSA Buzz Current Projects: Advocating for a Universal School Food Strategy for Alberta 

Like many Albertans, we believe that all children living in Alberta have the right to nutritious food and a healthy lifestyle. We also think it’s important to teach younger generations the value of food that is nutritious and sustainably produced.

That’s why we are advocating for the Alberta government to take the lead on the development of a Universal School Food Strategy. 
 

Alberta Food Matters! (operating as GFSA)

For over 13 years Growing Food Security in Alberta (GFSA) is now operated by Alberta For Matters (AFM).  Over its 13 years GFSA supported many projects and initiatives across Alberta focusing on food security/food sovereignty using an asset based community development approach. Dietitians of Canada supported some of GFSA financial requests for these projects. Seven hundred groups and individuals are now part of the Network, all seeking to connect and work together to achieve food sovereignty and food security in Alberta and understand the real value of real food.

Food Matters across the province of Alberta

Albertans are leaders, and with that leadership comes a provincial responsibility. Our province has a responsibility to ensure we can grow and produce food that will feed our own people. No different than our commitment to safe communities, health care and education, all Albertans deserve access to enough nutritious food to maintain an active and healthy life.

Alberta map of local food and useful resources

The brain of the Alberta Food Matters and GFSA website, this map connects people with food-related assets in Alberta. When we know where people and places are, we can connect to them and build relationships essential to ensure food security and food sovereignty! Please submit a listing if you know of one that we're missing.
