This food assessment was conducted to examine food security related issues and resources in the North End of Winnipeg. The key goal of this food assessment was to develop a community profile of the local food system in the North End which will provide a base for capacity building for food related security initiatives. The assessment includes an inventory of food resources in the community; identifies current gaps and opportunities with respect to food security in the community; documents current food knowledge and skills within the community and identify what additional knowledge and skills are desired or needed; identifies ways to engage community members, service agencies, government and local businesses to actively participate in local food system initiatives and is a base on which to build the food planning process and to develop specific food security initiatives.
