BFH Papers

Unique to this year’s Bring Food Home conference, we are really excited for the series of Collaborative Sessions, which have been scheduled and organized by the Networks of Sustain Ontario, and will take the form as live policy discussions. Each Sustain Ontario Network has been working with student researchers to create policy position papers, these papers will drive the discussions for the sessions.
