"Food resilience" means being able, at all times, to acquire safe, nutritionally adequate and personally and culturally acceptable foods, produced in ways that are environmental sound and socially just.

Although our food supply is currently secure, risks associated with climate disruptions, international food policies and higher priced fossil fuels could reduce our access to global food systems.

In addition to fresh, Edmonton's Food and Urban Agriculture Strategy, we are working on helping Edmontonians reduce food waste and a strategy to help mitigate the risk to our food supply in case of droughts.

Take Action

  • If you have a yard or a balcony, you can grow your own produce. Don't have the space? Look into joining a community garden.
  • Become a beekeeper or raise some hens.
  • Shop local and buy your groceries at farmers markets. It supports the local farmers and helps ensure we have an adequate, stable food supply if there's a disruption in the global food supply.
  • Healthy soil grows healthy food. Learn how to feed the soil at Compost 'S cool.
