Food Secure Future - Alternative Food Systems
Play • 27 min

The Food Secure Future Podcast brings together researchers and experts from the field to discuss how to feed the future in a way that is healthy, sustainable, and nutritious. The COVID-19 pandemic caused some major disruptions to the global food system, including restricting travel of seasonal labourers and transportation of food over long distances. Resultingly, alternative food systems like community gardens, farmers' markets, and traditional Indigenous methods of food production, have grown in popularity. But why did we move toward globalization in the first place? Can both of these strategies be used together to create a more resilient food system?
