About us

Calgary EATS! is a multi-stakeholder group with representation from the various sectors within the food system: production, processing, distribution, access, consumption, and waste recovery. Our vision is to achieve a sustainable and resilient food system for the Calgary region and to ensure that the principles outlined in the Food System Assessment and Action Plan are met, i.e., a food system that is local, accessible, secure, environmentally sustainable, healthy and contributes to community development.

History:
The Calgary EATS! Food Assessment and Action Plan (2012) was developed in response to a City Council direction that was driven by a growing citizen demand and community awareness of the value of a sustainable food system. The Food System Assessment and Action Plan was the result of an extensive process of engagement and consultation. This document contains key recommendations to move toward our vision of realizing a sustainable and resilient food system for the Calgary region and to help achieve related imagineCALGARY targets.

If you are passionate about our food system and want to make a difference, participation in the Calgary EATS! Stewardship Group is an opportunity for you to contribute to achieving the vision and targets.
