Get Involved

Thank you for your interest in the Thunder Bay and Area Food Strategy!

If you’re passionate about building a sustainable food system for the region, there are a number of ways you can get involved. No matter your age, interests, or ability, everyone has a role to play. After all, we all eat!

Ways you can get involved:

  • The Food Strategy is currently leading a market study to assess local food demand in the Thunder Bay Area. Surveyors will be out at the Country Market in July-August to talk to you about your local food purchasing preferences, habits, and desires. We'd love for you to participate! More information will be available via Facebook.

  • Join a Food Strategy working group! Contact Amy Bumbacco, Food Strategy Coordinator, at (807) 624-2143 or amy(at) for more information.

  • Visit the Community Projects page to find out about great things going on locally in which you can get involved.

  • If you're in school, consider taking on a research project with us! In order to match you with a project, we'll need to consider your area of study, interests, and timelines. Make sure to get in touch!

  • Get to know who grows your food and connect with local farmers at the farmers market or join a CSA.

  • Grow your own produce and share your food traditions. Thunder Bay has several community gardens you can join!
