Kamloops Public Produce Project

Kamloops Currents met up with Kamloops Food Policy Council at their Public Produce Project on the 100 block of Victoria St. Here's a short video on the project and thought behind it!

We are working together to grow a regenerative food system for Kamloops by building community capacity around food through programs, policy, and partnerships.

The First Canadian Summit on Climate Action in Food Systems @ Delta Grand Okanagan

Sustainable Grain is hosting the inaugural First Canadian Summit on Climate Action in Food Systems to showcase and further explore the vital link between soil health, human wellness and climate change. Proceeds will be reinvested into online learning tools and regional workshops to educate and support landowners to implement new nature-based, regenerative food production practices.

  • The Kamloops Food Policy Council, based in Kamloops, BC Canada, is on the traditional, unceded territory of the Secwepemc people who nourished themselves and this land for millenia.

    This ancient gathering place, where the North and South Thompson Rivers meet is called T’kemlups in the Secwepemc language, Secwepemctsin. This land is called Secwepemculecw.

    Every month at our potlucks we speak a new Secwepemc word together. For December, the word is swucwt (swoo-kt) = snow.
