Calling Youth to form a Youth Food Committee in York Region

Are you between the ages of 18-30 living, working, studying, or with roots in York Region and

passionate about food issues, and/or social and environmental justice? Then read on!

We recognize that youth are not only the leaders of tomorrow but the leaders of today. On September 3rd York Region Food Network hosted a youth panel that started a much overdue discussion on how youth lead and can change the way we grow, produce and consume food.

We want a community where health and social justice are prioritized and all residents have economic and physical access to healthy, local, culturally acceptable and environmentally sustainable food. We believe youth are vital in making this happen. That's why we are forming a Youth Food Committee where youth can come together to discuss and act on food issues in York Region.


As a member of the Youth Food Committee, youth will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about food issues in York Region and develop leadership skills,

  • Connect with other engaged youth and leaders in York Region,

  • Pitch, contribute and/or lead food policy, advocacy and/or education initiatives.


Are you, or someone you know:

  • Between the ages of 18-30 living, working, studying, or with roots in York Region?

  • Passionate about food issues, and/or social and environmental justice?

  • Keen to share your experience and ideas while contributing to advocacy, education and policy processes to address local food and justice issues?

If the answer is "YES!" please join (or share) our Youth Food Committee!
