The scope of this report is both broad and detailed. Its intent is to provide enough information about food security and food systems to bring all Trustees to a general level of understanding, while providing enough Trust-specific detail so that Trust-specific policies and actions can begin to be discussed and explored. The primary goal of this report is to inform Islands Trust Council of the general concepts involved in food security, draw connections between the various facets of the topic and give a general overview
of the food system and our interactions within it. The secondary goal of the report is to start a Trust-wide conversation with regards to how the concepts, themes
and actions surrounding food security can be incorporated into Trust policies, regulations and advocacy.

With music by Marianne Grittani
Marianne Grittani began performing in the late 60s when she was 14 in Toronto, Ontario. Her music, with so many varied influences defies categorization. She calls it ‘folky, funky and anything in between’. She explores a lot of musical territory, on standard acoustic six string guitar, a resonator guitar and mandolin. Her compelling voice along with her strong sense of rhythm, melody and dynamics weave through and around her lyrics to create an engaging musical tapestry.
