What is a SHU-food Animator?
We are looking for someone who ‘cultivates’ and ‘grows’ working relationships between different sectors of our local food system — Shuswap farmers and food producers, food processors, distributors, consumers and waste recovery systems. This helps increase the commercial viability of food, reduces food waste and builds regional resilience to upcoming challenges in food security including supply chain disruptions, transportation challenges and climate change. At an organizational level, the Shu-food Animator seeks to "build community around local food." At a systems level, they will work to understand and address the gaps, barriers, assets and action steps for supporting distribution, aggregation and vertical integration of the supply chain in the region.
Engage food and ag sector community in local and regional decision-making processes
