The Vic West Food Security Collective is an action project resulting from the Victoria West Community Association 2003 Vision Project. The guiding principle of the Collective is community building.
The Collective is a group of volunteers who work on projects to strengthen production, consumption, and access to food that is safe, nutritious, affordable, locally produced and environmentally and economically sustainable.
There is much work to be done in building our neighbourhood’s secure food system. Our goal each year is to increase our participation in existing projects and create new projects. The biggest benefit from our efforts is the resulting community building, both within the individuals who participate, and for the whole Vic West Community.
Our moto is…cultivating community by growing and sharing food!
