time and energy to prepare. Together, all the ways we grow, process, buy or acquire, and prepare food make up our collective food system. By putting together information on the components of the system, we can begin to see how each one affects the others. CFSA hopes to get an accurate sense of the barriers to eating well here, and what changes (more community gardens, new bus routes, making fresh, local food available at more neighbourhood outlets, etc.) have the potential to address these in a meaningful way. By talking to a wide range of people, we hope to present information to help ensure that all Powell Riverites enjoy the security of a safe, sustainable and accessible food system.
