Description

This study looks at the synthesis between urban food security and rural food producers through such social-economy projects as catering, community gardens, collective kitchens (City of Ottawa, 2001), projects that are part of ‘buy local’ strategies. This project, which builds upon earlier research (Lauriault & Welch, 2003; Leduc Browne & Welch, 2001), proposes policies for a sustainable, long-term solution for food security. The study focuses on the rural Franco-Ontarian community of Eastern Ontario but will develop policies with a more general intent.
