Feeding the Community: Our Community Fridge Project

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Our project is based on thorough research of best practices and discussions with the Provincial Health Department and community partners that launched in July of 2019. The two main goals of this project included addressing issues of Food Security in our community and Reducing Food Waste.
Our presentation will outline first steps, funding, community partnerships, staff buy-in and lessons learned. We will allow ample time for questions and hope to inspire others to follow in our footsteps. We know that libraries traditionally are not a place for food, but we have decided to break with tradition and help our community where it needs it most.
Presentation in English, however questions from the audience can be asked in either French or English.
