Bow Valley Food Alliance
The Bow Valley Food Alliance has just released its research report on Food Security. Conducted in Banff by Dr. Lauren Kepkiewicz it is the very first research undertaken specifically on food issues in Banff (first in the Bow Valley in fact). Attached are two parts: The Banff Research report “Imagining Food In Banff” is the summary document with findings and the second is a companion report with all the conversation/quotes that were used to compile the findings. Please feel free to use these to identify actions or projects you are interested in pursuing and for grant or funding opportunities.
This report will also be used as a supporting document to the Food Charter work currently being undertaken.
Funding has now been received to take this research to Canmore & the MD of Bighorn

We are undergoing a bit of a revitalization at the Barracks this summer. We want to hear what you're interested in and what's important to you in this space, so we created this short three-minute survey. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5936WTW
CYAN - Canmore Young Adult Network
Every individual in our network has a purpose, and we want to make sure you feel connected and involved in the ways that you want to be. Are you unsure, or do you see yourself being involved in ways that you aren't already. We want to know!
We created a 5 question survey, that should take only a few minutes to complete. This survey will give us insight as to how to get YOU
more involved with CYAN!
Plus, as a bonus for filling out our survey, you have the chance to be entered into a draw to win a $50 VISA gift card!
