ThINC About Food Security - Summer Program
(June - July, 2020)
Think about food security. What does it mean? How can Thetis Island be more resilient? The pandemic has highlighted the parts of our society that need attention, one of which is our food system. As you are well aware, this is even more of an issue for a small island like Thetis. Thankfully, we have a strong community of islanders who look out for each other, and a growing Food Co-op that is helping address our food security gaps by producing local organically grown food and providing food delivery services. To aid in this effort, ThINC, with the support of the Canada Summer Jobs program, TIRRA, Stewart Fund, and the Community Fund, is pivoting its activities this summer towards addressing island food security. As part, we've brought together a small group of individuals to help with operations at Jollity and engage in other local projects.
