About the Initiative

What is the Mount Waddington Community Food Initiative?

The Mount Waddington Community Food Initiative is a partnership between North Island College (Mount Waddington Campus) and the Island Health. The project has three key aims:

1.)     To explore the current assets and gaps in community efforts to improve food security within the Mount Waddington Region;

2.)     To determine the feasibility and relevance of providing support for region-wide networking and capacity building through a Food Security Hub for the region

3.)     To develop a region-wide action plan to build on assets, address gaps and ultimately, improve food security across the region.

Community engagement and participation are integral to the success of the project. A parallel project is happening concurrently in the Mount Waddington Region.
