Tackling Food Insecurity Through Social Enterprise

August 12 @ 12:00 - 13:00 CDT

An unconscionable number of people are food insecure in our communities across Canada.

For decades, social safety nets have been eroded and food banks have done their best to fill gaps in food access. Guelph-based social enterprise The SEED believes that gaps in affordable access to food can be filled using the social enterprise approach. At this BBL, we’ll hear from The SEED’s Social Enterprise Development Coordinator, Tom Armitage, who’ll shed some light on the challenges and opportunities in his community, and how the social enterprises operated by The SEED have helped to address them.

Tom Armitage: is the Social Enterprise Development Coordinator at The SEED community food project in Guelph. Tom has a BSc in Agriculture and a Masters in Geography where he studied the politics surrounding food systems. Tom has led the development of six different social enterprises over the last 11 years spanning both the for-profit and non-profit sectors.
