Abstract:
As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds, social and economic impacts continue to emerge for communities here in British Columbia. In response, PlanH has developed a series of Rapid Action Resources to support local non-Indigenous governments and Indigenous governments with an understanding of the equity considerations around various aspects of food security, as well as examples of good practices in food security from other local governments in the province and across the country. Food security is complex and addressing the various aspects of food security — including food systems and food insecurity — will require action at various levels to positively affect outcomes for individuals, families and communities. This resource explores some considerations around the role non-governmental organizations (NGOs), faith and cultural groups, and charities play in food security and identifies opportunities for Indigenous and non-Indigenous local governments to enhance collaboration with these vital cross-sectoral partners in order to build a stronger food system and respond to individual and household food insecurity.
