A guide to building food security in rural communities.
This handbook is geared for rural and remote regions interested in creating a program to enable or increase food security in their communities. Its goal is to help guide those of you wishing to do this work, whether you are in local government, social services, the health sector, farming, or an eater with concerns about what is on grocery store shelves.
The document opens with definitions and an argument for food security, followed by an outline of core ingredients for any food security program: people, mission, resources and administration. It provides examples of possible projects you may decide to explore, with resources for further guidance. It also considers the public policy context for your work (legislation and regulation).
