About the Food Team

We all eat. But access to good food isn’t equal for everyone. That's why the Ecology Action Centre's Food Team is working for positive change in Nova Scotia's food system. We collaborate with local government and advocate for a just and sustainable food system where the benefits and risks are equitably shared.
