The EAC was one of the first organizations in the Maritimes to identify the important connections between our food system and the environment. For over a decade, EAC has been working towards creating a more sustainable food system, where healthy, local food is accessible to all. We have done so by working with local farmers and gardeners, promoting local purchasing, farmers markets, and CSA’s, enhancing people’s food skills and knowledge, and advocating for systems-level change that gets at the root of community food security.
