Growing a Sustainable Food System for Newfoundland and Labrador
A multidisciplinary approach to a sustainable food system for Newfoundland and Labrador.
Over the centuries, people living in Newfoundland and Labrador have demonstrated remarkable resourcefulness in order to reap the bounty of both sea and land. However, despite renewed interest in traditional Newfoundland and Labrador cuisine, the reality is that many cannot attain healthy and affordable food. Food Futures contributes to the Canadian food studies literature by exploring the origins, present day complexities, and future of the Newfoundland and Labrador food system. This interdisciplinary collection draws from the research of 24 scholars in disciplines ranging from anthropology to biology. Collectively, the authors offer a vision for a sustainable food system that meets the dual goals of achieving food security and food sovereignty for all.
". ..an extensive selection of ethnographic studies of food (in)security and sovereignty by researchers working in Newfoundland and Labrador. The book contributes to the expansion of food studies in Canada and internationally, and considers ways to address vulnerabilities in food access, to promote a sustainable food system, and to help preserve the cultural identities of different peoples in the province.
