This report presents the findings from a community food security assessment undertaken in the Bonne Bay Region from May-August 2009 as part of the CURRA. A community food security assessment is a powerful way to tell the story of what is happening with food in a community, and to mobilize efforts to improve the food system. It may be understood as, “a collaborative and participatory process that systematically examines a broad range of community food issues and assets, so as to inform actions to make the community more food secure” (Pothukuchi, 2002). In an effort to paint a picture of the community food system, I compiled a food resource inventory, undertook food costing in eight grocery stores throughout the region, and completed interviews with community members from different positions in the food system.
