The National Student Food Summit is a 3-day event that engages youth from across Canada on campus-related food issues. By bringing together multiple sectors including government, academics, non-profit organizations, food industry, and more; students are provided with authentic youth leadership development, networking opportunities and a platform to share ideas and strategies.
The National Student Food Charter was conceptualized at the Summit in 2011 and is today considered an integral resource representing the student voice as an instrument of change for campus food systems. The National Student Food Summit is known for having speakers and panelists address broad food systems issues with an emphasis on how they apply to the local on-campus experience. Additional emphasis is placed on showcasing practical examples of successful student work leading to positive food systems change, and how these initiatives fit into the bigger picture. Open forums and discussion groups ensure that students have the opportunity to network, brainstorm, formulate and share ideas allowing them to reach their own conclusions on the subject matter explored.
If you are a post-secondary student interested in food issues, this is an annual 3-day event you don’t want to miss!
