Eat Think Vote
Eat Think Vote, led by Food Secure Canada, is making food an issue in the upcoming federal election.
The Eat Think Vote campaign recognizes that agriculture in Canada is facing an unprecedented succession crisis. Half of the country’s farming population is over 55 and over 80% are looking to retire in the next ten years. The time to support new farmers and farmers transitioning to more sustainable forms of production is now. To read more about supporting new farmers, click here.
Eat Think Vote wants to see the creation of federal programs designed to reduce the barriers new farmers face in accessing land, capital and training, all of which are priorities for Farms at Work as well.
