The Thunder Bay and Area Food Strategy is committed to creating a healthy, equitable, and sustainable food system that contributes to the economic, ecological, and social well-being and health of the city of Thunder Bay and Area.
The Community Food Security Report Card establishes baselines around the 7 pillars of the Thunder Bay and Area Food Strategy so that progress towards a food secure community can be measured.
The Thunder Bay and Area Food and Agriculture Market Study (FAMS) report offers a detailed picture of the potential market share for local food in the Thunder Bay and Area to assist in the growth of our local agri-food economy through business development and expansion.
We wish to acknowledge the original custodians of this land and pay respect to the Elders—past, present, and future—for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture, and the hopes of Indigenous peoples. We recognize that the Thunder Bay and Area Food Strategy operates on the traditional land of the Fort William First Nation—signatory to the Robinson Superior Treaty of 1850. We acknowledge the political representatives of Indigenous Nations in northern Ontario: the Anishinabek Nation, Grand Council Treaty #3, Nishnawbe Aski Nation, and independent First Nations and the many Metis historic settlements in the region.
