Groundswell: A Guide to Building Food Security in Rural Communities is full of information and links to tools and resources.  Get started with tools that will help you to reach out to your community to find out what is needed and by who.  Then get inspired by the section describing programs and services that are being offered in other communities.  You will find information on developing policies to support food security and find contacts at the provincial and national level. As the book was published in 2013, some information may be out of date.
