The Greater Sudbury Food Policy Council (GSFPC) is excited to announce the launch of the Food Strategy Outreach Coordinator position, and would like to introduce Erica Lagios as the new Coordinator. Since 2013 the GSFPC has brought together stakeholders and community leaders to coordinate and share ideas, and foster collaboration and communication among those working within the food system. The launch of the Greater Sudbury Food Strategy in 2017 by the GSFPC was an important milestone in moving the community towards a more equitable and sustainable food system. The Food Strategy Outreach Coordinator will gather those working in the food system, and build and strengthen partnerships to further improve food security and sovereignty in our city.
Since moving to Sudbury from Southern Ontario in 2015, Erica has delved into Northeastern Ontario’s food movement, working with Eat Local Sudbury before it’s closure, and managing the Sudbury Market. She brings to the role established relationships with important stakeholders, extensive knowledge of the local food movement, experience as a stakeholder in the development of the Culinary Tourism Strategy, and participation with the Greater Sudbury Food Policy Council as a resource member, including participation in the Food Strategy launch.
Erica will create a solid a base for future action on the Food Strategy through interviews with key organizations, businesses and groups, community outreach, and gathering stakeholders together to plan next steps. If you would like to contact Erica, you can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Food Strategy Outreach Coordinator position is a partnership between the GSFPC and reThink Green, and is made possible by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities’ Job Creation Program.
