The Thetis Island Food Mosaic
In June 2020, the students of the Summer Food Security Program (the ThINCpod) were asked to design and develop a digital food map for Thetis Island that would help connect consumers with local food producers.
The food map currently identifies a handful of local producers, markets and retailers, and food education/workshop facilities, and is continuing to grow.
To recognize Thetis Islanders who make an effort to be more food secure, the ThINCpod included an additional element, "Food Security Champions." This section shares the stories of some local individuals and families who are engaging in self-subsistence practices, with the aim to encourage others in their own food growing journeys.
Please explore our Food Map to learn more about local producers, markets and food retailers, and food education facilities, and read about our 'growing' community of Food Security Champions.
