Comfort Food

In the pandemic month of March, we recorded food makers serving YYT talking about aspects of food and food business - growing, producing, scaling, and rising to the challenge.


Our food system connects business, culture, opportunity, hope, despair and joy.  Its threads weave long and strong - and vulnerable.  Through snowmaggedon, then COVID, 2020 and 2021 underscored the fact that building sustainability into our food system is vital to our food security and comfort.

The business of food nourishes our community economically, societally, and through health and well-being.  Food is Comfort in so many ways, and the entrepreneurs of the food system build our communities - facing challenges with hope and courage, looking for silver linings, celebrating our traditions and looking for ways to connect and build a sustainable, food secure future.
