We have posted the first of the videos featured at the Shaking the Tree Video Celebration that took place at the Mondragon Bookstore and Coffeehouse on March 5th, 2009.
Food security exists when all people at all times have access to as much safe and nutritious food as they need in order to meet their dietary needs for an active and healthy life. The Good Food Club is a unique initiative centred in Winnipeg’s West Broadway that works with members of the community to provide community cafes, fresh food boxes, local farming opportunities, and a community vegetable market. These events provide opportunities for participants to work in exchange for ‘sweat equity points’ that can be redeemed for healthy food. By farming together, cooking together, eating together, telling stories and sharing ideas, they are working on building a healthy and food-secure community in West Broadway.
