What we do
A FOOD SECURE MANITOBA
Food Matters Manitoba is building a province where good food nourishes strong communities and healthy people.
We cultivate leadership by working with community partners, public policy makers, and youth to develop strategies and take action towards a food secure Manitoba where everyone has everything they need to eat well, all the time.
Our Mandate: Cultivating Leaders
We work with community leaders looking to make a difference through collaborative projects that get at the root of food systems issues. We build on the strengths of diverse stakeholders to ensure food security in Manitoba.
The issues are complex and call for strong leaders to address concerns like household food insecurity, regional disparity, colonization and racism, diet acculturation, and diet-related disease.
Our program initiatives support community partners, policy makers and public institutions in achieving their food security objectives, using the most promising practices and best available evidence.
