The Food Security Hubs are a collective of organizations working together with Island Health and other community partners across the Island Region to support healthy food systems, address food insecurity and ultimately improve health. Food Security is a complex systems issue. A Healthy Food System requires action from multiple partners across sectors to bring about positive change.
Food Security Hubs are working in every corner of the Island Region to strengthen food security efforts locally by raising awareness and knowledge of key local food security issues and identifying and supporting opportunities for collaborative action on local food security priorities. Food Security Hubs bring together community partners to build a Healthy Island food System where everyone has access to the foods they need to thrive. Hubs are connecting with schools, local governments, Indigenous organizations community members, not-for-profits, food providers, and others.

The Island Food Hubs, along with the Island region’s dieticans and environmental health officers are committed to supporting community environments where no one is hungry and everyone has access to the foods they need to thrive. Together we share a vision for a Healthy Food System for the Island Region.
Our impact grows when we work together on common goals for a healthy food system for our community. We all have a role to play. It’s more important than ever that we work together to build a safe, secure, and sustainable food future for our Island communities. Small actions can have big impacts when many people take part.
