Preparing for the Impacts of Climate Change: The SEED

A one-pager with a case study from the Impact of Climate Change on Social Purpose Organizations(SPOs) report.

An organization dedicated to providing healthy food to people of all income levels in the City of Guelph, recognizing that over 20,000 people in Guelph-Wellington do not have access to healthy food.

Their objective is to build a circular food system “fueled by the community and filled with dignity.” The SEED aims to drive this system change through social enterprise (particularly the employment of young people), community involvement, collaboration with other community organizations, building good food into the health care system and advocating for improved government policy.

Recognizing the community food security needs and the climate and environmental impacts of wasted food, The SEED created several initiatives addressing this intersection.
