Many of Food First NL’s projects overlap on a common goal: to make the healthy choice an easy choice for Newfoundlanders & Labradorians.
We are working with like-minded partners to ensure the public has better access to healthy food in places where they spend lot of their time, like schools, universities, hospitals, and government buildings.
These public institutions feed large numbers of people daily. In addition to improving our diet by improving our access to healthy food, these sectors have profound purchasing power. If they choose to purchase and serve more locally produced foods, they will be serious economic drivers for local agriculture, fisheries, and other food industries, which would help build a more robust food system, and strengthen food security in NL.
