During the month of December, and the first week of January, the Farm To Fork team ran a crowd funding campaign.
Farm To Fork is a home-grown solution to food insecurity. We are proud to be a part of the Guelph community, and we are proud to be University of Guelph Gryphons. Farm To Fork was recently featured as one of the examples of science and technology designed for social good in the annual CPES Dean’s message (an excerpt is provided below). If you’re interested in helping out the Farm To Fork project, please consider donating through the venues identified below.
Together we can ensure that every person has access to healthy food.
On Saturday the Farm To Fork team headed to the Centre Wellington Museum for the Food For Thought event. The goal of the day – discuss accessibility to sustainable healthy food by all people. Approximately 100 people took part in the event, discussing such things as What is a food bank? What is already happening in the area around the ideas of accessibility and local sustainable agriculture? and What are the priority items that will make the area even more accessible and focused on sustainable healthy food?
As part of the event, co-founder Danny Williamson spoke about what inspires him about food and community. His words are below.
Last night the Farm To Fork team attended The Big Show – an event to showcase the 52 idea makers who submitted projects to The Elevator Project, and to announce the top 15 projects. Projects were judged by community members who cast votes for their favourite projects, and by a panel of community experts. The top 15 projects were also awarded funding in excess of $70000 (in both cash and in-kind mentoring).
