The Edmonton Food Council recruits new members once a year! If you want to be a part of a dynamic team that is helping to shape the future of food and urban agriculture in Edmonton, then the Edmonton Food Council is looking for you!

It’s an exciting time in Edmonton that is seeing an explosion of interest and activity in all things food – farmers markets, community gardens, food trucks, food festivals, urban farmers, backyard hens and bees, edible front yards, restaurants serving local menus, fruit rescue and gleaning, the rise of permaculture and aquaponics, and so much more. All of this great work will benefit from the support of the Edmonton Food Council and the City of Edmonton.
