Food Sovereignty NL

Food Sovereignty NL encourages people to think critically about their food sources and prioritize eating local vegetables, fruits, berries, fish, and meat from culturally appropriate, environmentally sustainable, and ethical sources. This group is a place to share resources on where to find locally grown and harvested foods, share recipes, and create a community for people who are striving for a diet that cares for our planet, as well as our bodies, mind, and spirit.

Food Pricing Survey:
From Nain to Corner Brook

To better understand the cost of key food items across our province, the CLEAR Lab at Memorial University, the Social Justice Co-operative NL, and the Nunatsiavut Government are collaborating on a citizen science survey project to collect data on food prices. This data will be used to create both ground-level data and insights into regional food pricing as well as province-wide information for policy and advocacy.

Impact of Climate Change on NL Fisheries

Webinar with Kimberly Orren (Fishing for Success), Dr. Paul Foley, (Grenfell Campus, Memorial University) and Dr. Tyler Eddy (Marine Institute). Presented by the Social Justice Co-operative NL and MUN Climate Action Coalition.

As greenhouse gas emissions warm and acidify our oceans, the ecosystem they hold is adapting and changing. While some species can thrive in the new conditions, others are dying out or migrating north to colder waters.


How is this climate change impacting our fisheries? How can communities build resilience to this change? And what is the role of Memorial University and the Marine Institute in helping communities adapt to and mitigate the impact?
