*Secure (also known as ”food secure” or “food security” or “community food security”): Food security occurs when all community members have access to safe, healthy, affordable food and culturally appropriate food. Food security promotes sustainable practices so that we respect and protect our environment. Food security also includes social justice whereby food is recognized as a basic human right.

**Sustainable: Sustainable food systems consider long-lasting, self-supporting and fair practices and work to enhance the social, economic and environmental health of a place.

***Food system: A food system includes food production, food processing, food distribution, food access, food consumption, food education and waste management.
