Laurier Centre for Sustainable Food Systems

The Laurier Centre for Sustainable Food Systems (LCSFS) connects researchers and community partners engaged in sustainable food systems change. We create opportunities for citizens, practitioners, policy-makers, private enterprise, and academics to work together to imagine and foster food systems that are fair, healthy, ecologically regenerative, culturally appropriate, prosperous, and inclusive.

Using food as a lever for positive change, the LCSFS enables meaningful collaboration among people across institutions, sectors, and disciplines to support community-driven research, innovative knowledge sharing, and the development of community resources and more sustainable food system policy. Our interdisciplinary work cuts across multiple projects to create local and global networks that help develop resilient food systems. The LCSFS is the institutional home of the UNESCO Chair on Food, Biodiversity and Sustainability Studies, which promotes research, communication, and education to enable transformative food systems change.
