  • To lead community outreach, relationship building and communications with community members, agencies, and small businesses in Parkdale
  • To promote civic and food education and capacity-building workshops in partnership with PFN member agencies
  • To initiate and coordinate campaign and advocacy work related to food insecurity and policy issues in Parkdale

Currently, the group is working on a local campaign to raise awareness of food insecurity challenges facing Parkdale community members by engaging politicians in the conversations.
