The Food Security Committee was formed in May 2018 and is comprised of organizations and institutions that wish to work together to directly influence the health and well-being of individuals and families.
The committee brings together stakeholders from government, organizations, non-governmental organizations, community-based organizations, businesses, schools, and researchers to develop a long-term, ongoing, inclusive, and sustainable approach to food security in Grande Prairie that is responsive to the nutritional needs of our community.
Through a collaborative process, the committee is responsible for the implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of an action plan on food security. The committee will also act as a venue to share best practices and resources.

The Six A’s of Food Security
With the rising cost of food and essentials, F.A.S.T is conducting a city-wide survey of all its residents to understand Grande Prairie’s perspective on food insecurity, its root causes, and possible solutions and to identify whether residents are aware of the community resources that are available to them during times of need. The survey is threefold, it is meant to:
- raise awareness for the concerns facing our community
- identify the gaps in services in our community
- create an action plan to address food security in Grande Prairie
