Food systems in BC are riddled with inequalities. Planning offers a unique site to enact social justice in community food systems to avoid reinforcing and replicating historical harms and injustices. The objectives of the Representation and Engagement Tool are to a) examine the representation and engagement problematic patterns, and b) build the capacity of individuals and community organizations to integrate Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) in community food system planning.
