Food Council Member Application

The Food Council, which was created in 2018, is an advisory board to the City of Charlottetown that strives to improve the existing food system in Charlottetown as guided by the Food Charter.

Over the last year the Food Council’s work has included a series of virtual Community Conversations About Food, the launch of the Charlottetown Food Asset Map, and ongoing efforts towards a municipal policy review as relates to supporting and facilitating a resilient food system.

The City aims to compose a Food Council with a diverse membership that is truly representative of the food system, and the community it serves. As such, individuals from any area of the food system are encouraged to apply. This includes, but is not limited to, the following sectors: production, food retail, food distribution, health and nutrition, institutional, emergency food providers, non-profit food related groups, food processing, culinary arts, academia, individuals having lived experience with food insecurity, and community members at large with a vested interest in food security/the food system.

In addition, the Food Council seeks equitable representation of underrepresented groups. Residents are encouraged to apply who identify as Indigenous, persons of colour, newcomers or refugees, 2SLGBTQIA+, youth (ages 16 – 30), seniors, and persons with disabilities.

Applicants are asked to demonstrate skills, knowledge, and/or lived experience that inform and guide their perspective on the food system as well as a desire to contribute to the development of a sustainable food system in Charlottetown.

Eligible individuals must be age 18 or older and must live, work, or own property in Charlottetown.

If these forms of application are a barrier to participation, please contact Katrina Cristall at [email protected] or 902-629-2594 to discuss additional options.
