From the Ground Up
This primer helps to build common ground on local food by informing people about challenges and opportunities facing Kingston and countryside’s food system. Starting with an overview of the food system itself, the primer examines specifics for Kingston and area, before moving on to look at some local food success stories from other areas. Lastly, the primer discusses how we can learn from successes elsewhere and adapt various approaches to build a local food system on the strengths of our region. Read the PDF. 74 pages.
Sharing Food Down the Road
This booklet is our way of sharing what Food Down the Road (FDTR) is, how far we have made it on the road towards a sustainable local food system for Kingston and countryside, and ways to get involved with us!
The booklet is 56 pages long and can be downloaded as a PDF.
When thinking of food, some people define local as Canada. Others may define it as Ontario alone. For NFU local 316, it means dealing with your neighbors. Through building a community where we know the people who produce our food, together we will also be building a better local food system. We are thankful to the people who have sponsored this publication. If you would like to sponsor Food Down the Road in print or online contact email@example.com.
