Community Advisory Committee
Our diverse Community Advisory Committee (CAC) works with organizations and stakeholders, particularly those from marginalized groups including, but not limited to, Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, and 2SLGBTQI and community members to facilitate discussions that promote broader understanding and engagement between residents of diverse backgrounds and abilities.
The CAC creates a sense of belonging and increases opportunities for marginalized individuals to fully participate in their community using a food literacy framework. The CAC creates leaders with lived experiences, and increases engagement in decisions that affect the community. Through the CAC, members have a voice and are empowered to create change for themselves and build a stronger neighbourhood and community.
The role of the CAC is to provide a vehicle for effective community input to GROW’s board of directors. The CAC meets regularly and is a representation of the diverse needs and interests of the community. We believe this adds significant value to the conversations, decisions and governance structure of GROW.
