How to get involved: I want to organize an event

Eat Think Vote gathers a wide diversity of organisations and partners, united in their agreement to work together to build a more healthy, sustainable and just food system.

Organisations can get involved by doing one or several of the following:
  • Organizing an event in their community
  • Providing policy leadership in the area of their expertise

1. Event host

  • Agrees with the general goal of a sustainable, just and healthy food system in Canada
  • Organizes an event that includes the following elements: provides food or a meal; invites candidates from all political parties; invites community members, especially those from marginalized or underrepresented groups; facilitates discussion
  • Host an inclusive, non-partisan event where all political parties are invited to attend
  • Abstain from directly or indirectly supporting or opposing any political party or candidate for public office
  • May work alone or with other organizations and actors in their community
  • Takes charge of their event’s logistics and promotion, with help from the FSC team and toolkit
  • Conducts a modest evaluation of their event and reports back to the FSC campaign manager

2. Policy expert

  • Contributes to developing backgrounders on food issues, including a highlight of current policy solutions. These backgrounders will help event hosts across the country to engage in well-informed conversations with their candidates
  • Acts as a national spokesperson on a specific topic or policy solution
  • Reaches out to their own networks, inviting them to organize or participate in an event

Just fill out the form below to let us know you want to get involved!

Event hosts will be provided with a full toolkit with information on how to plan, organize and run their event from A-Z, including social media templates to promote their event and a template letter to federal candidates.

How to get involved: I want to spread the word
