Everybody Eats Is Looking for A Youth Representative For Its Action Group on Community Food Self-Sufficiency

Everybody Eats is a nationally recognized project that convenes key players from the public, private, and community sectors, so we may all — from farmers and fishers to policy makers and consumers – work together in building a more vibrant food system, and a more food secure Newfoundland & Labrador

The Everybody Eats Action Group on Community Food Self-Sufficiency is striving to improve our access to locally produced and wild foods, as well as promoting the skills required to avail of them.

9 New Programs Chosen in the Coast Bays to Boost Community Food Self-Sufficiency & Security

Many months of fun, hard work have culminated in the creation of 9 new programs in 3 communities in the Coast of Bays that will improve residents' access to healthy, affordable food — from pig & chicken rearing, to community freezers full of donated game, fish, and berries, to community farms that include a plot for the local school, and more, like the heritage rhubarb garden pictured above, that's already produced tasty treats for the whole town.

To make the healthy choice an accessible and easy choice for Newfoundlanders & Labradorians, we must ensure the public has access to healthy food in places where many people spend much of their time, like schools, hospitals, and government buildings. Furthermore, these sectors have profound purchasing power: if they bought and served more local food, they'd become serious economic engines and lynch pins for our local food system.

Leo’s family has been fishing for a living for 200 years. His video focuses on preparing fish.  He goes beyond removing the fillets, to showing us all the other goods available from fresh cod that, for too long, were being discarded as waste, including one of Leo’s favourites – the nape – which is a thin slice of belly meat.
