General info
On April 19, 2005, a number of academic and community based researchers from Ontario concerned with food security had a meeting at Ryerson University. This was a regional meeting to discuss developing a proposal for an interdisciplinary national research program. Participants decided to organize an association to promote critical, interdisciplinary scholarship in the broad areas of food production, distribution, and consumption. The proposed organization, the Canadian Association for Food Studies (CAFS), aimed to allow researchers from diverse disciplines working at universities as well as public and community based organizations to meet regularly to identify research priorities and to share research findings on diverse issues dealing with food security concerns.

They have an annual conference every year in May.
