Northern Food Distribution

Cloverbelt Local Food Cooperative

Local food distribution successes and challenges in northwestern, Ontario with Jennifer Springett, President of Cloverbelt Local Food Cooperative (CLFC) based in Dryden, Ontario. CLFC’s innovative approach to local food distribution goes against traditional brick-and-mortar food hubs, and instead leverages a network of existing infrastructure and regional assets to distribute local food in a geographically expansive and sparsely populated region, which includes remote and isolated communities in Emo, Sioux Lookout, and Kenora.
