September 25, 2012, 9:15 AM EST
Food Secure Canada will hold its 7th National Assembly in Edmonton, Alberta from November 1 to 4 bringing together a national network of people and organizations working for zero hunger, safe food and sustainable food systems.
The assembly will highlight the successes and challenges of projects and programs for social and ecological justice and sustainability. There will be a variety of plenary panels, workshops, roundtable discussions and networking sessions.
In May 2012, Food Secure Canada issued a statement calling for the creation and adoption of a national food policy, which was based on a series of recommendations outlined in "Resetting the Table: A People's Food Policy for Canada."
