LFFC’s 12th Annual Assembly: RESILIENCE

Event Details

Join us for Local Food and Farm Co-ops’ 12th Annual Assembly: RESILIENCE – democratizing the food system from seed to supper.

Now in our 12th year, our Assembly on March 9th-11th brings together farmers, co-ops, food sovereignty leaders from across the province to learn from each other to further advance the local food and farming cooperative movement in Ontario. Our themes this year focus on cooperative development, pandemic resilience and BIPOC food sovereignty. Spanning three days of workshops, inspirational speakers, and our Mentor Match-up connecting co-ops and organizations across the sector, this year we will be adding a film screening of “First We Eat” about Northern food sovereignty and an interactive online cooking session surrounding stories of and cooking with manoomiin (wild rice).

Since our last Assembly in March 2020, we have seen how communities have come together to help each other through COVID-19. We have also seen an increased interest and development of local food and farming initiatives as well as cooperatives throughout the sector. People are thinking differently about food sovereignty, and how to build sustainable movements towards a better way forward.

Join us and be part of the conversation!
