As a follow up action to our national 2013 Vital Signs report Fertile Ground and with support from the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation, Community Foundations of Canada conducted a survey of our network in 2015 to better understand where and how community foundations support and provide leadership around food activity in their community. This publication aims to develop a deeper knowledge of our network and shares stories of progress unfolding across the country to inspire further action. The report also explores some challenges on the road ahead and looks at opportunities for community foundations to continue to engage around community knowledge, impact investing, institutional procurement, food strategies, community conversations, and much more!
