Winnipeg’s North End Food Assessment

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.
