Getting Involved with Food Security in Alberta

What is Alberta Food matters and the GFSA Network?
Alberta Food Matters works to foster leadership, relationships and actions that reconnect people, land and food in Alberta; Alberta Food Matters grows through community development, research and evidence-based approaches, policy development and skill building, educational projects, programs and workshops. The GFSA Network (now operating through the new non-profit Alberta Food Matters) connects and links people, organizations and groups, to each other and to resources.
