Planning for Food Security: A Toolkit for the COVID-19 Pandemic

Featured Food, Food Security, Food Systems, Indigenous Health

During a global pandemic such as the one we are currently experiencing, food systems can be disrupted and lead to additional food security challenges for communities. There is an opportunity, however, to take more control over the community-level food system. With this toolkit, your community can make short-, medium- and long-term plans for food security using a food systems approach. This toolkit includes ideas, templates, tools and information to support your planning.

This Toolkit was developed by the First Nations Health Authority. 

How to use this resource:

  • Explore why food security is so important and how to put food system thinking into action.
  • Explore planning tools to create a plan for a full food system and whole community approach to both emergency food security planning and long-term planning.
  • See additional funding sources for food security available for short- emergency funding and large-scale funding to support community food systems.
